Not Just Roe

Indeed. I remember talking to people in 2000, back when it was hip to be an Economist reading "independent" who was a bit above all that politics stuff, who truly thought it probably wouldn't matter all that much who would become president, except for maybe that Roe thing.

As we've all learned now, children, the President and the Executive Branch have quite a bit of power and it does actually matter who has the job, and not just because their judicial appointees might declare the uterus to be state property. That's important too, but it isn't the only thing.
