Are you accustomed to thinking of presidents as the highest level of political power? In some countries a prime minister holds the corresponding office, but in most modern countries even the top official has limited power.

When you were a child did you look forward to gift occasions such as your birthday and Christmas with eager anticipation of what you would receive? As you mature into adulthood you become able to acquire the things you need by yourself.
