What Type of President Do We Need Next?

Setup

Having served as advisor under four different Presidents, both Republican and Democrat, there are few more acquainted with the demands of the office than David Gergen. Join Gergen and NPR’s Renee Montagne to explore which leadership qualities the next president needs most in order to succeed. Which required skills and gifts are timeless and which unique to this moment? Is it toughness we need now, or the ability to build consensus? Is there a candidate who can do both? Beyond politics, partisanship, and even policy--character is central to the presidency and the workings of an administration. What traits hold promise and which flaws are dangerous in 2016?
