One of the great things about Daffy's films is that there is never any lesson to be learned from them. This is not the case with "Daffy Duck For President", which tries to teach the audience a bit about the government.
Daffy seems to think that if he becomes president, he will be able to extend rabbit season forever and finally rid himself of Bugs, not to mention save his own hide.
Bugs teaches Daffy that presidential power is not as total as the duck thinks. Bugs' delivers the schoolroom teachings as Daffy tries to find loopholes in the Constitution.
The story was a concept by Chuck Jones before he passed away and the film is respectively dedicated to his memory.
