Abstract: The purpose of this study is to establish an instrument to measure the environmental accomplishments of two recent presidents, namely, George H. W. Bush (Bush41) and George W. Bush (Bush43). We have examined their accomplishments paying attention to which presidents have best used the resources of their office to achieve environmental success. To assess the records of these two presidents, we made use in our analysis of an Index of Greenness, that we previously developed, that uses indicators organized into three categories: 1) political communication; 2) presidential actions, and 3) sources of support. To further assess the achievements of these two presidents we used Bill Clinton's environemntal accomplishments during both his first term (Clinton 1) and second term (Clinton 2) as a control to provide context for observing the two Bush presidencies.

Our findings show that Bush (41) ranked third among the four presidential administrations, while Bush (43) ranked last. Clinton's second term (Clinton 2) ranked best followed by Clinton's first term (Clinton 1) ranking second based on these indicators. George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush represent presidents who failed to meet their self-imposed obligations--namely, an environmetnal presidency and a president who wished to show compassion in his public policy initiatives toward the environment. Environmentalism clearly fared better during the two terms of Bill Clinton. We anticipate that our efforts in this paper will give us insights concerning the contributions that other presidents have made over time in their efforts to deal with the environment.

Abstract: The first three post Cold War presidents, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush occupied the Oval Office during times of international transformation. All faced dangers and sometimes used force to achieve their objectives and this paper investigates the relationship between personality characteristics, especially conceptual complexity, and willingness to choice force instead of other policy options. The project relies on Margaret Hermann’s leadership trait analysis and at-a-distance measures. The paper compares scores of seven explanatory variables, e.g., conceptual complexity, distrust of others, etc., on leadership and world orientation for George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush against the scores for every American president since Harry Truman. The comparative analysis helps demonstrate the role of individual of individual level traits in creating and implementing foreign policy.

Abstract: There has always been elements of politics and patronage in federal judicial selection, but in the administration of George W. Bush judicial independence is unrecognizable. This paper will evaluate the consequences of the threatened "nuclear option" that endangers the process of Presidential nomination and Congressional confirmation. Projections of criminal justice policy from the federal bench will be examined from available evidence. The future of judicial independence is at issue.

Abstract: This paper aims to establish leadership profiles of the 41st and 43rd American Presidents using Margaret Hermann's Leadership Trait Analysis and at-a-distance measures. This coding scheme allows scholars to produce profiles of leaders that lead to explicit hypothesis testing and replication. This resolves some of the most contentious methodological criticisms leveled at qualitative and archival works in foreign policy analysis.
