You court allies at home and on the battlefield. Politics is about public relations-- making friends, influencing people. In some places it has a become a high powered game to prove who can be tough. The president has the right approach. And after work should be able to relax with a few of the guys without any chicks among them. I would hope if and when a 'credible' female becomes president-- whenever that it, given the present crop, she too can play with the girls after work, without someone asking-- no guys. Glad he finds time to release some stress.
