How much impact can the President have…?

I thought this clip was interesting, given my academic interest in the Presidency. Ezra Klein (standing in for UP!’s host, Chris Hayes), discusses the impact of presidential speeches on the legislative process. Summary: it’s unfortunately not like The West Wing, and people need to stop thinking that.

The show continued, as Klein turned the topic over to his guests. It’s not bad, actually, although I think the shorter clip above is probably enough.
