Johnson, William

(1771–1834) Supreme Court justice; born in Charleston, S.C. He served in the South Carolina legislature (1794–98) and the state's high court (1798–1804) before President Jefferson named him to the U.S. Supreme Court (1804–34). He often dissented from the opinions of Chief Justice John Marshall, thereby establishing the model for recording dissenting court opinions.

After providing the theoretical framework on what the framers of the Constitution intended the relationship between the president and Congress to be, chapters consider "premodern" attempts at midterm campaigning by Andrew Johnson, William Howard Taft, and Franklin Roosevelt and the reactions to them by Congress; the transformation of midterm campaigning from one of restraining presidential behavior to engagement in campaigning; how this changed behavior plays out in the campaign season, by looking at presidential campaign strategy and how presidents structure their efforts to reshape Congress; and the results of this strategy and the impact on subsequent elections and future behaviors of Congress and the electorate.
