Constitutional Powers for the President

Appoint ambassadors, federal judges, and Supreme Court Justices
Grant pardons and reprieves
Appoint senators if there is vacancy
I think the most important power is making treaties with foreign policies. I think this because it is important for America to have stable relationships with other countries along with creating alliances with those countries.
Good Qualities in a President
Ability To Communicate: Can speak with an open mind and take other's views and feelings into consideration while still being able to promptly make a point.
Understanding The Public: Is able to understand the public's views and tend to their wants and needs along with what will essentially help the country.
Ability To Compromise: In a perfect world, everyone would be able to agree on things. Unfortunately, that's not the case. The leader needs to be able to come to a compromise with other countries and also the other branches of government.
Political Courage: Believes in themselves as an individual and as a leader of a country. Has confidence that they can make great changes within a group of people.
The most important quality to me is having the ability to communicate in a way that everyone understands. They speak clearly and explain thoroughly in order for citizens to comprehend what is going on in their country.
