Think about it seriously. The man didn't even do a full run as a senator. Spent no time in the house. The only experience he had before that was at the state level, and none of it executive. He was never mayor or governor, just state congress - the guys nobody can name when they're asked. How many of them, regardless of party, do you think take him seriously when he gets up there to preach at them about how to compromise and write legislation for him to sign? It's like the newbie freshman on the football team telling the Varsity squad how to play.
And how much of that sentiment impacts what gets written and whether it's passed?
