PRESIDENTIAL HISTORY The president is the highest leader in the U.S. Each president is elected to office for a four year term. A president can then be reelected for another term. January 20th after the election is Inauguration Day. The president is sworn in by taking the Oath of Office. Then the president gives a speech called an inaugural address. A vice president is also elected. This person helps the president do the work. If something happened to the president, the vice president would take over his job. The president also has a group of people to give advice about different areas. This group is called the cabinet. The White House in Washington, D.C. is the home and office of the president. If the president has a wife, she is called the “First Lady.” The office of the president is called the Oval Office. The president meets with the cabinet (his group of advisors) in the Cabinet Room. During the War of 1812, the main part of the White House was burned down. It was then rebuilt. Each president belongs to a political party. Usually a president is a Democrat or a Republican. © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved.
