    powerful? GOPers are scared of a Charlatan who is as smart as a 6 years old.

      than in it.

      He doesn't have to worry about pleasing the voters every few years. He can focus solely on advancing his agenda.

      No, I don't think he'd trade his current position for any elected office, not the even the presidency.

      You only get to be president for eight years. Norquist has been the supreme leader of the anti-tax movement for nearly thirty years now. Four or five generations of Republican politicians have been forced to kneel at his feet. Now that's power!
