Federalist No. 70
Federalist No. 70, authored by Alexander Hamilton under the pen name Publius, is the seventieth of 85 essays. Titled "The Executive Department Further Considered", Hamilton discusses the importance of having one single person for the president, as opposed to multiple or regional presidents as was suggested during his lifetime. Hamilton was very opposed to a plurality in executives as it diminished accountability and leadership.
