While a POTUS does have a bully pulpit to push his agenda, I think it a sad state of affairs when voters believe a POTUS has to 'care' about personal issues of citizens. Why? Because it treats the electorate like children, and that's not a POTUS' job. Issues like economic policy, nat'l defense, foreign affairs, budget matters, and SCOTUS appointments are just about all the Constitutional concerns assigned to a POTUS.

It's a curious phenomenon: When liberals / democrats won't compromise or 'moderate' their views, these liberals / democrats are often characterized as 'progressive' or 'pragmatic' - champions of the little guy.
When a conservative / republican won't compromise or 'moderate' their views, these conservatives / republicans are often characterized as 'partisan' or 'bigots' - lap dogs for eebil rich people.
