Summary Jefferson, Coolidge, Hoover, Reagan: If the American national identity is less a condition than an idea, no one is better positioned to express it than the president. "The vision thing" is an expectation that our leaders bring to office a strong sense of national mission. While these four may have understood the special character of America differently, each one believed that a distinctly American way of doing things guided his decisions.
