Ever since the founding of the Republic of Korea, our nation has adopted the U.S.-style presidency. For the first time in history, the United States adopted a system by which the people elected the nation’s leaders. Korea, which has emulated the United States, has also adopted such a presidential system. Thus, regarding the U.S. Presidents, it is important for Koreans to know what kinds of persons have become President, which Presidents have succeeded and what were the reasons of their successes.
