Executive Orders

If the presidency were a card game, President Bush's latest executive order would be a card that directs the person playing it to immediately forfeit all his Political Capital. It positions him well, however, to earn a lot of Legacy Points and win back the Republican Party's economic base. It may also serve as a wedge, forcing Democratic congressional leaders and presidential candidates to take a side on the issue: a true dilemma for those whose business it is to please all the people all the time.
