Subject: Executive privilege

CSPAN's Washington Journal had on today the American University's Mark
Rozell, author of a book called EXECUTIVE PRIVILEGE. Rozell stated that
although the privilege has been used since George Washington's time, it
acquired the name "executive privilege" during the Eisenhower administration.
William Safire's THE NEW LANGUAGE OF POLITICS didn't include the term.
It is, however, in SAFIRE'S NEW POLITICAL DICTIONARY Citations from 1954 and
1958 are given. Fred R. Shapiro found "executive privilege" in a 1940 U.S.
Court of Appeals case, _Glass v. Ickes_.
Safire states that the _e_ in "executive privilege" should be capitalized
because it refers to the Office of the President.
Any opinions/observations on this?
Anyone read Rozell's book?
