Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A President, like Consciousness (the president of the state of mind), is always 'after the fact' that the entire government (and everything that feeds in and out of it) has already acted upon. Just like the CNS.

It is not possible to run a hierarchic organization from the top, on the basis of a one page daily summary of every issue - unless, there is complete reliability of the bottom up analysis of the metrics at every level of the organization.

And when government is staffed by people chosen for their ideology, it is the result of a long process. The Supreme Court is also a 'long game'. However a single appointment to the SC, should a vacancy appear, can have more far-reaching consequences than the election of any president.

You can't be me, I'm taken
