NaBloPoMo: 6 November

"If you were President of the United States, what would be your first act in office?"

My friend (the same one who will be whinging about Obama for the next four years if he wins, as mentioned yesterday) suggested "stop broadcasting military plans" and just shutting up in general about and not telling everyone everything you want to do and when, which is probably a good plan but is more of a acting-by-not-acting deal.  So I looked up what the President can actually do, and the short answer is "not much".  The Wikipedia article on presidential power lists "numerous powers" but they are mostly things like "receiving other foreign heads of state" which is a formal way of saying "throw a party".  So that's what I'd do.  I'd throw a party in the White House.
