does my paragraph assess # 1 ?

assigment was to compare th views of presidential power and preisdential leadership by corwin and nesutadt include #1) their differing academic backgrounds and approaches to studying the presidency.
Maximizing the notion of a modern presidency, dating back to Franklin D. Roosevelt, political scientist Richard Neustadt argued that presidential power is influence (2). His concepts derive from that of a behavioralist perspective that is more consistent with Democratic views of the role of government (119). Neaustadt uses a pluralist view to understand the presidency. He implements “statecraft” approach to presidential leadership, which resembles that of Machiavellian politics (119). In contrast, constitutionalist Edward Corwin argued that legal authority secured presidential power (2). Corwin emphasizes the development of presidential power and presidential office under the constitution, he relies on “constitutional language and interpretations of presidents courts over time” (137). Corwin embraces Theodore Roosevelt’s “stewardship theory”, which calls for an assertive presidency that is confined only at points specifically prohibited by law (138).
