The Whiteman who brought Democracy into this land hardly stay in office for too long. And even if he does stay a little longer and his attitude, inactions, or tenure is marred or suspected to be foiled with corruption, or going contrary to anything which is against why he was sworn into office, he does the honorable thing by leaving that space for another to come continue from where he left.

At least the American people can't blame the rest of the world for the end of Democracy in the land of the free.
