Comparison between the Marshall Plan and Cambodia Invasion Student’s name Course number Date Comparison between the Marshall Plan and Cambodia Invasion Designing a democracy where qualities of a top leader are expected to make an influence on political outcomes the results might look similar to the United States political system. There several key factors that determine a successful presidential leadership in the modern day. Each President had their own way of providing leadership to the people. In America history such cases have been witnessed with Harry Truman using the Marshall Plan and Richard Nixon’s Invasion of Cambodia. The Marshall Plan had a comprehensive idea of rehabilitating the European countries and one that made a historic success as it met its objectives. On the other hand the direct orders from President Nixon commanding the American troops to invade Cambodia and back South Vietnamese up was meant to shorten to Vietnam leading to possess great personality as it affects their leadership theories and styles. However leadership does not always guarantee success hence it is substantial to go back in history and learn to distinguish the successful leadership styles from those that are likely to fail.

In 6-8 pages develop an argument about the key factors determining successful presidential leadership in the modern era (FDR forward). Your argument should be rooted in the scholarly literature on the presidency. Develop your argument in more detail by exploring two cases where a president attempted to provide leadership in some way. I think that the easiest way to do this would be to choose a policy or action widely viewed as a historical success and another that is widely viewed as a historical failure (e.g. - Truman’s Marshall Plan and Nixon’s invasion of Cambodia). However, you do not need to follow this mold. You could also compare two successes or two failures.
