The head of state of the United States is called the President, who also serves the functions of chief executive and commander in chief of the armed forces. In the history of the United States, there have only been 44 presidents, all of whom have come to office in an orderly fashion, without the shedding of blood.
Relative to many of the heads of states from around the world, who often hold largely ceremonial powers, United States Presidents are capable of a large degree of meaningful political action and do possess a great deal of power. They can veto any legislation passed by the two houses of Congress, but their veto’s can be overridden by Congress. They appoint the heads of the various government agencies. Although the Congress must approve the government's annual budget, it is prepared for them by the President.
By current law, the U.S. president serves a four-year term and may only be re-elected once, as a result of the 22nd amendment to the U.S. Constitution. In slang, the President of the United States is sometimes called POTUS. The wife of the President is known as the First Lady.
