The paper provides the definition of a good president, reveals Andrew Jackson's popularity and focuses on three policies that define his presidency and were key in establishing precedents and expanding the role of president. The paper discusses South Carolina's refusal to obey a high tariff act, the National Bank closure and the Indian Removal Act. The paper emphasizes the qualities of Jackson and concludes that if Jackson was in fact to blame for his policies, his voters, peers and the politicians who became Presidents without changing the policies are equally as guilty.

From the Paper:

"There are 3 policies that defined Jackson's presidency. These were key in establishing precedent and expanding the role of president, which still influences our system today. The 3 policies are: Nullification, National Bank Closure and the Indian Removal Act.
"Andrew Jackson was only the 7th president in a young country. Each president before Jackson tried to take actions that were defined by the Constitution and to cooperate with the will of Congress. Andrew Jackson was the first president to win the election with a clear majority, and he was the first President to be re elected."
