I couldn't agree more. The presidency has essential symbolic elements that convey legitimacy, even gravitas: Air Force One and Marine One, the Presidential Seal, and especially the Oval Office. Only one man in the world gets to speak from behind the Resolute desk in the Oval Office, while any number of world leaders or members of Congress can stand in front of a podium flanked by flags.

Persuasive analysis and spot-on conclusion; how typical for a University of Illinois professor!
