It’s a shame that Obama has been around long enough to screw up enough. I still like the guy, but it’s an increasingly untenable position. He’s doing a better job than Clinton or any other president in my lifetime, but that’s setting the bar low.
I don’t expect him to stop the transfer of power to the executive, because the sort of person who goes for the job does not turn power down. But dagnabbit, he should have a thought to what happens after him.
Now that we know that a trillion dollar coin is a legal possibility, it is important to plug that loophole quick, before some damn fool makes use of it.
