But, the end is very very telling.

Presidents do not 'run' the country (read it as rule). Presidents lead, cajole, bluster and try to influence. But, they don't run the country.

Businessmen do run companies, though. And, there is the confusion.

Indeed. The GOP lead recall of California's governor grey davis was partisan in the extreme - and very successful in its implementation. They figured out how to make everybody question the ability of davis to "run" california, and suggested that Arnold Schwarzenegger, with his great business success in movie production, would do a great job "running" things.

Poor Arnie never figured out how things worked outside of his special cigar smoking tent in Sacramento (but he looked great in the 'visit kahleeefornia' tv spots).

Mitt, with his 'i know how to do business' laissez faire attitude will hit the same wall.
