In this article, the writer looks at how the election cycle restrains the President of the United States from pursuing bold economic policy initiatives. At the same time, the writer also reviews how the executive and legislative branches act as restraints upon each other. Finally, the writer explores how it is possible for elected officials to ignore the economic interests of millions of Americans who reside below the poverty line even though the nettlesome problem of poverty has been a subject of public debate for decades - if not generations. The writer concludes that politics is a rough terrain populated by many bickering interest groups and "players" and the access to the President of some of these groups is such that they can successfully thwart daring economic policies which might run counter to their interests even as those policies offer renewed hope to large segments of the American population.
