Ask them whose advice they would listen to, if they were in Emerson's position, and what they would do if they did not have his Hollywood-style convenient resolution. What kind of qualities should a president have, and how are those qualities revealed in campaigns? What do they think about the way Emerson accepted the consequences of his decision?
