I would delegate, negotiate, preempt, chastise, verbalize and reward. Further I would promise to clarify and elaborate, sympathize and comfort. I would speak softly, but in addition, carry a big stick. And if someone wanted me to get rid of the big stick, I wouldn't listen. It wouldn't matter. I've got the stick. Sounds like I'm just as crazy as the next fellow. It's wonderful to be an AMERICAN. Besides,,,the Pres doesn't run this country. He is the mouthpiece for his party...or, at least he's supposed to be. I wonder about Obama...too much discension in his ranks. Easier just to march them out and shoot'em, but that would be unseemly.
