    I feel that the president plays an important role in protecting the constitution that is just as important as the judicial branch. The president takes an oath to uphold the constitution which means that he is honor bound to veto any legislation that is not compatible with the constitution and is obligated to use whatever powers he has to enforce it. This means he can choose, by executive order, to not enforce existing laws that he/she feels are not compatable with the constitution.

    The president of the United States should not concern himself with the democratic will of the people since that role is fullfilled in the legislative branch. The president's job is to veto bills that he feels are unconstitutional even if it happens to be something he agrees with.
