His hundreds of other speeches covered a range of issues, including economic policy, global health, the federal budget, and the arts.

In 2010, Shesol published his second book, Supreme Power: Franklin Roosevelt vs. the Supreme Court, about President Franklin D. Roosevelt's court-packing plan.

In 2002, Shesol was the Anschutz Distinguished Fellow in American Studies at Princeton University, teaching a course on the history of the presidential speech. He has written essays and articles in his own name for publications including the New York Times, the Washington Post, and Politico. He also offers regular commentary on television and radio.
