President

A president is a leader of an organization, company, club, trade union, university, country, a division or part of any of these, or, more generally, anything else.

Etymologically, a president is one who presides, (from Latin prae- "before" + sedere "to sit"; giving the term praeses). Originally, the term referred to the presiding officer of a ceremony or meeting (i.e., chairman), but today it most commonly refers to an official. Among other things, "President" today is a common title for the heads of state of most republics, whether popularly elected, chosen by the legislature or by a special electoral college.

Famous quotes containing the word president:

    The President is not only the leader of a party, he is the President of the whole people. He must interpret the conscience of America. He must guide his conduct by the idealism of our people.
    Herbert Hoover (1874–1964)

    The loneliest feeling in the world is when you think you are leading the parade and turn to find that no one is following you. No president who badly misguesses public opinion will last very long.
    Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882–1945)

    Every President wants to do right.
    Lyndon Baines Johnson (1908–1973)
