It is that totalitarian impulse that makes Rand seem exciting in the first place.
I can imagine the argument: "Well, we should work locally, but think about HOW MUCH we could accomplish in the White House."
That need for instant power and instant, broad, effect IS IN FACT why people turn away from liberty to statism. So the very idea of using the white house to advance liberty, and making that the main channel of our efforts is in some senses offensive.
