    Does The U.S. President Have The Power To Ban "Intelligent Design"?

    Is it within the powers of the U.S. President to permanently ban "Intelligent Design" (from the U.S. education system) by citing the 1987 Supreme Court ban of Creationism in the U.S. education system and also by citing the Separation of Church and State?

    I hope it is a Presidential power because then we, as concerned citizens, can lobby the Democratic party or specifically Democratic candidates like Hillary Clinton and Barrack Obama to say that they will support and listen to science and ban "Intelligent Design" as unconstitutional.

    There is absolutely no science behind "Intelligent Design" as its movement is motivated by a malignant political and religious agenda.

    I think it would be an unfair long and arduous process if every time the creationists change their name that scientists then have to march back to the courts to have their nonsense banned. "Intelligent Design" is clearly the trojan horse of creationism thus the Supreme Court ruling of 1987 should apply to it.

    The president has no such power.

    This topic doesn't really belong in Science or Religion; it is fundamentally a U.S. political question.
