I wouldn't think so, but I think I answered this in response to a question
that you asked about his being a general and having no one to give him an
order, but, frankly, I have forgotten now.

That's as interesting question. All sarcasm aside: Is he really? I have
often wondered that. Same with any politician. Once they have been
elected, there is little - if anything - we can do. Our only power is next
election, but, in the meantime, zilch. And, frankly, I don't trust any of
them. I believe that any and all of them will say and promise whatever it
takes to get elected. It's a crap shoot at election time.
I sometimes believe I am being far too cynical. yet, other times, I
believe I am right on target.
