No. One person cannot turn this country around. One person can lead us and I hope he/she does in 2012. But it takes Congress, the President and the Judicial Branch to turn this country around. That's why the founding fathers made the three branches of government, so one person or one branch of government couldn't become so powerful and take over the government and the U.S. end up with a monarchy or a dictatorship or an oligarchy.
It really does take bipartianship to run a democracy such as ours. As we can see and have found out, when we don't have bipartianship, we have a dysfunctional government. So, will the congressmen and president get together or will we have rancor and divisiveness? It will take everyone working together to turn this country around. And that includes, "we, the people," also.
