And I don't just mean your handshake! I warned my readers here at D&N to strap themselves in and adopt the crash position when you took over and, to be fair, so far there haven't been any major catastrophes but even so, "little things mean a lot"! Running a country is nothing like running a company. In the latter, as you know better than me, the Boss can swagger about, issuing orders to all and sundry and expect them to be obeyed swiftly and efficiently. However, as you are finding out the hard way, it doesn't work like that when you are running a country. You need to define your aims carefully, plot your strategy meticulously, take good advice as to the myriad obstacles there are trying to thwart your purposes which will definitely not be confined to just your political enemies! Always and forever, there are those pesky lawyers, irritating political opposition and, even more damaging, as you have just discovered, there are your hapless and hopeless friends who will let you down. You can indulge in political domination and insist on the direction of travel, and indeed you should, otherwise, why bother to be President? However, as Napoleon once said, "Time spent on reconnaissance is never wasted"!
Finally, know thyself!
