  •  the president as super speaker of the house? (0+ / 0-)

    Seriously, this plan has some weird side effects.

    If you went through with this, the president would almost certainly be of the same party as the party controlling the house,  and not only that,  but  the election for the presidency would be essentially the same election as the the election for the house of representatives.

    Which means that the house and presidency would be become much more interlocked, and in some ways, that president would be more like a "super speaker", because he'd be much more involved with the fate of his house members and more politically involved with their reelection.

    Very weird, since we already have speaker position.
