Best Answer

Roger Sherman believed the President should be appointed by the legislature, because he saw the Presidency as an office whose sole duty was to carry out what Congress decreed. He felt that the President should not be accountable to anyone but Congress since he would be in effect Congress's agent and Congress has the supreme power of government.
