How would the good burghers of San Francisco, say, feel about eight years of their school system run by George Bush?
Sorry...I probably should have been more specific. If we're replacing local boards (or at least augmenting them) at the federal level then we need a federal board. So George Bush (or Obama or whomever) would NOT be running the school system(s).

However, government departments are influenced by those at the top and their appointees. I would guess there was a difference, for example, with the way the EPA functioned under Bush versus Obama, how they interpreted laws, what was enforced, etc.
