Description: In "The Revolution in Presidential Studies," Terry Moe suggests that bounded rationality and computational and agent-based modeling should become the core for future research on the presidency. I suggest other, perhaps complementary, directions for future research: (1) a greater integration of theories on the institutional presidency with those on the public presidency; (2) a broader and more comparative approach to studying political executives instead of the current parochial focus on the American presidency; and (3) a large-scale, cooperative data collection effort that parallels such efforts in other subfields, which has reinvigorated those subfields, attracted students, and allowed for more ambitious research questions and designs.
