Maybe they just believe in a little something called separation of powers. You know, the thing that keeps Obama from becoming the king so many of his a̶p̶o̶l̶o̶g̶i̶s̶t̶s̶ supporters desire.
"they are nothing if not media savvy."
I agree with you 100 percent in that aspect. The campaigner in chief is more skilled at sleight of hand than a magician.

Got to love that cult of personality and us vs them mentality.
