  •  The President is not a leader (0+ / 0-)

    I know that sounds counter-intuitive, but any president is limited by the wider discussion.  Sure, the president has perhaps the loudest voice in that discussion, but the point of winning the White House is to nudge the country in the direction you want so that by the end of your term the country is more liberal or conservative.  Real change is brought about by pressure from below, not dictates from above.

    There is truth on all sides. The question is how much.
