What I hope Adam Schiff's exemplary performance shows is the importance of co-equal branches

of government.

Some Representatives and more than a few Senators could take note that one does not have to be President in order to effect change and display leadership in the United States. The President is indeed the leader and head-of-state of America, but their power is, when checked properly by the other branches of government, not limitless.

We needs the Schiffs and the Pelosis...and the Bookers and the Swalwells...right where they are. I don't want to knock anyone's presidential ambitions if they truly think they can make a difference there and lead, just to point out that leadership in government exists in other places than that singular role.
