Good point.-The thing is, that although the Democratic party is somewhat like herding cats, Obama is clearly the leader of his party. -OTOH, Willard is NOT the leader of his own party and is not even a major leader. For example, he wants to repeal and replace Obamacare with something better.-Even if he were sincere (I’m very skeptical), McConnell and Boehner would be happy to repeal Obamacare, but McConnell has stated that the uninsured people is not the problem. On the contrary, the Americanhealth care system is the best in the world and only needs a few tweaks. So, no replacement from Republicans.-Republican party leaders include Grover Norquist, Rush Limbaugh, Mitch McConnell, Karl Rove, and some that are never seen. Willard is not part of that group and he ain’t gonna be.
