Resumen

SANMARTIN, José J. Political and rhetorical ideas of the constituent presidentialism in the USA. Alpha [online]. 2008, n.27, pp. 147-166. ISSN 0718-2201.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-22012008000200010.

In this article we will examine both political and rhetorical ideas as an ideological plural and irregular set that --at the same time-- cemented United States ideology in its early stage. The influence of this nationalist universe promoted by the Founding Fathers shaped the Presidency as a symbolic institution that has embodied, since then, an empiricism --mostly Machiavellian, though never recognized-- moderated by a formal idealism, but only partially effective. This cultural tradition --and its contradictions-- come up to the present time, where a President such as Clinton could recover the old flag of the American Dream, updating it in order to consolidate a new social liberalism.

Palabras clave : United States Status; Early constitutionalism; President; Political Rhetoric; Clinton.
