he has the power to make it happen or at least get the ball rolling.

He doesn't. Only Congress can do such a thing. He can bring it up and use influence but he has no such power or authority.

Presidential Influence can do wonders... Anyway, I'm hoping the added publicity will shame the corporations into acting instead of just giving lip service. One thing for certain, signing the petition won't kill any workers.

Have you been awake for the past 3 years? The president alone has very little power. He can sign and veto bills, and not a whole lot more.

Have YOU been awake ever? Public pressure sent Congress running scared on SOPA/PIPA. A President proposing something with STRONG Public sentiment now, would go VERY Far.
