*I know this role has been disputed and political commentators on both sides have said that it is the job of everyone to work to an agreement. I agree. In fact I believe that all of these points could be cross-stated for every branch of gov’t. I just believe these are the most prominent, given their position. (The last point about the executive branch was said only because the president is the one who is democratically elected by many, and therefore the singular person who strategically represents unity.)
