Although sometimes decried by pundits, George W Bush's use of moral and religious rhetoric is far from unique in the American presidency. This work analyzes the president's role as the nation's moral spokesman and demonstrates that moral and religious rhetoric is a strategic tool presidents can use to enhance their constitutional authority.

"Shogan's argument that moral rhetoric stems more from the political context of a president than from his personality or leadership style is right on the mark. . . . a valuable contribution to the literature on presidential rhetoric."--Terri Bimes, Associate Director, Center for American Political Studies, Harvard University
