The introduction introduces four important themes that will be developed throughout the book. First, Section 4 is useful only in certain narrow circumstances. Second, tempting though it might be to use, Section 4 would not work well in other circumstances. Third, Section 4 is not a substitute for impeachment, nor an end run around it. Fourth, when Section 4 is invoked and the President responds that he is not disabled, he does not retake power immediately. There is a process for his regaining power, but it is certainly not instantaneous or unilateral.
