This article challenges standard wisdom about Eisenhower as largely a passive leader in the realm of initiating and pressing for major legislation during his two terms in the White House. It demonstrates the different methodologies Eisenhower effectively employed--among them bully pulpit, hidden hand, and private cajoling--to advance his legislative agenda.
