    Well, Stephen Harper started from a better starting point, and he certainly deserves credit for helping to maintain sensible banking regulations that have helped Canada largely escape the financial mess that's embroiled the rest of the world. But Barack Obama is doing much more to actively improve his country than Harper.

    I picked Obama.

    Care to elaborate on that?? Cause from my perspective, Obama aims to massively increase the size of government, massively increase the money supply (through bailouts and eventual monetization of the debt, which = hyper-inflation), and overall establish more power and control of government over the people.

    Thanks.

    The problem with the question is not your intent. Since the jobs of Prime Minister and President are different, any answer for or against either option will inherently carry an opinion of how well the respective political structure itself works.

    The question does not allow all things to be equal, so a true comparison can not be made.

    For example, if one is needed, a Queen can exorcize royal prerogative
    and bypass the Prime Minister and Parliament completely to issue a decree.

    In America the First Lady is the closest thing to a queen, and holds no Executive power of any kind. The President and Congress can never be bypassed by the First Lady for anything more important then decorations and seat assignments.

    Also, the President is not a member of Congress, whereas a Prime Minister is still a member of Parliament.
