Spartacus: The Sweet Smell...
...of raw POWER is such an aphrodisiac.
Face it: The President just came from the Senate. The Vice-President just came from DECADES in the Senate. The Chief of Staff just came from the House of Reps, where he was in line to become Speaker one day.
This will be one hellishly effective administration, on both the legislative and executive sides.
Alea iacta est.
