ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's views on the concept of the "Permanent Campaign" as it relates to U.S. presidential politics. The concept was developed by political pollster Patrick H. Caddell in the late 1970s, and reflects his view that in order for a sitting president to govern with public approval, he must remain in a constant of political campaigning. The author suggests that administration of U.S. President George W. Bush represents the political perfection of this concept. It is suggested by the author that the Permanent Campaign philosophy may exacerbate political problems that arise in the traditionally turbulent second term in office. According to the author, the Bush White House has treated the Iraq war as a public relations problem instead of a military problem.
