    not sure about George H.W. and Clinton--they might have been real. Reagan, forget it. George W., forget it. Obama--think 8 years of W. and Cheney may have destroyed what was left of the Presidency before he got there.

    Ironically while increasing arbitrary executive power over the legislature and over the people.

    So what you have is what Trix satirically called an "iron-fisted puppet" but the fact is that may be close to the truth:  the President can stand up to the powerful in the private sector less and less, but has more and more arbitrary power over us.

    The party of Kennedy is also the party of Eastland. The party of Javits is also the party of Goldwater. Where is our party? Where is the political party that will make it unnecessary to march on Washington?
