Insert That Spider Man Quote Here

I forget who said it recently, but if you're the President of the United States, you don't hire lawyers (and others) who tell you why you can't do things, you hire people to tell you how you can.

You don't always have to listen, of course, as "can" does not equal "should" in all cases, but "oh, well, nothing we can do" is almost never the right response!

Ditto the Senate deferring to the parliamentarian. Maybe they should, but stop pretending you have to.
