“The Presidency at its best is the loftiest political office in history. No other offers a great leader so much opportunity to lead so great a nation. But to bring the Presidency to its best, to develop its full potential, requires something more than political skill, political courage and long experience, all of which Lyndon Johnson has in plenty. It requires something mystic, some indefinable bond between leader and follower. It requires faith of each in the other–however created, however sustained–that leader shall also be servant, and follower shall also be master. And if many if the American people do not have that kind of faith in their President today, the real reason is likely to be that they do not believe he has it in them.”
–Tom Wicker, “The Proprietor of God’s Country,” a New York Times Column, July 19, 1966.

What do you mean: “The Palm Coast City Council in syndication from the World Wrestling Entertainment?”
It’s very vague and does not portend well ! PLEASE EXPLAIN ONE FROM THE OTHER !
