I believe King is using the term as in - to draft a candidate - not as in - Greetings from the President of the United States.
King the US Fed Gov, is a construct of the various Soverign States, each of which have their own pecuilar rules and laws concerning who may appear on the Presidential Ballot.
The Dems and Pubs run sort of a two card Monte, to control who may appear on the ballot. You could research the tribulations of Ross Perot, Patrick Buchannon, Libertarian Party etc, to get a understanding for how the law and rules in each State vary.
Oh and could you include the Re-Establishment of the Republic of Texas as a sub-plot ?
