Standard

My answer to Is there anyone in the United States government who commands more power than the POTUS?

Answer by Ken Larson:

Absolutely.

“STRATFOR”

“Congress, the Supreme Court and the Federal Reserve Board all circumscribe the president’s power over domestic life. This and the authority of the states greatly limit the president’s power, just as the country’s founders intended.

To achieve anything substantial, the president must create a coalition of political interests to shape decision-making in other branches of the government.

Yet at the same time — and this is the main paradox of American political culture — the presidency is seen as a decisive institution and the person holding that office is seen as being of overriding importance.”
