This chapter relates the Policy Priority Model to modern U.S. wars. Focusing on the key parameter of interest—namely, the relative importance assigned to national vis-à-vis local political outcomes—this chapter explains why World War II and the post-September 11 wars should substantially augment the president’s influence, whereas the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and the Persian Gulf War should generate more modest effects. The chapter then identifies critical tests that distinguish the predictions of the Policy Priority Model from other plausible explanations for a president’s wartime influence at home.
