Who really cares about the Presidency. I'd rather have Congress, because that's the better hope for change. They have to have spines though. It's too easy to control one man in the executive branch. Just get the right CoS on him, and certain things will be the issues of the day.
“Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.” — James Madison
