Presidential independence

What are the main powers (expressed powers) granted the president directly
by the Constitution? What are inherent powers? What are some of his delegated
(statutory) powers? What are some examples of duties/powers assumed by the
president in more recent times? (Think FDR and the president as Chief legislator.) How and why
has the power of the President increased over time, while that of the party
(Democratic or Republican) has lessened in the past few decades, and has this led
to greater presidential independence? (Think campaign finance/bribery, and the change over time in its
sources.) Please provide examples of this power shift.
