    because the President fills all the executive agencies, nominates all the Federal judges, and shapes the leadership of a large number of independent institutions.

    I think I will always vote for the Democratic candidate for President, no matter what my reservations, because s/he will fill those positions with better people than any Republican President. The Republican appointees have been horrible.

    If you care about down-ballot races, you should care about the appointed positions you fill indirectly when you elect a President. On a day-to-day basis, in the administration of government and in the courts, they probably have more collective impact on the nation than any elected official.
