520    Five presidents (Eisenhower, Reagan, Clinton, Bush, and 
       Obama) have been elected to and served a second term. 
       Seemingly free from electoral pressure, each president has
       taken a unique approach to their second term, and the book
       seeks to unpack the rationale behind their decisions and 
       actions in their final years of power.|bSince ratification
       of the 22nd Amendment in 1951, five American presidents-
       Eisenhower, Reagan, Clinton, Bush, and Obama-have been 
       elected to serve a second term. Presumably, by virtue of 
       their term-limited status, these presidents are free from 
       electoral pressure to pursue policies in the public 
       interest, but this is a questionable assumption. Second 
       term presidents face a host of structural obstacles that 
       make it difficult for them to carry out their tasks. How 
       then do presidents lead through these politically-complex 
       circumstances? How can presidents make the most of their 
       second-tem mandates while battling against waning 
       political power? This book seeks to answer the complex-and
       often paradoxical-challenges presidents encounter in their
       lame duck years
