You are taking my statement way out of context. I was referring to Connie's demand that all of Bernie's demands be included in the Democratic platform at their convention. I'm sure some of Bernie's ideas will be included in the platform, but demanding all of them is a bit extreme for someone who lost fair and square.
I also asked her if she would be saying the same thing if Bernie won and Hillary wanted to have all of her demands included in the Democratic platform.

No, he can not. He can ask to paint the White House gold, but he will still need funds from Congress to do it. The same goes with pretty much everything else.
He can make demands at the Republican National Convention and push for his priorities to be included in their party platform, but a party platform is far different than passing bills into law.
Dutch Wrote: Just one question what is happening to Obama's demand to appoint an SCOTUS member under his reign? It is dead quiet about that; thus the "next" president (Trump?) is appointing that after all? So the GOP got again their wish? In this government at present there are no "winners" so "demands" float in thin air; only plenty of losers and chameleons at present in the GOP.
He's appointed someone, but the Senate has the power to block it if they wish. That's what happens when Democrats sit on their ass during midterm elections. We get a Republican Senate that can block anything the President asks for.
