The chair he sat in for an interview, the swimsuit he donned for practice, the Graham Activities Building pool he nearly crossed without surfacing, they all looked too small for Reece Whitley. Though barely 15 - his birthday was earlier this month - Whitley is a 6-foot-8, 235-pound Penn Charter freshman, and when he mingles with swimming teammates, he looks more like their instructor than their peer. In fact, these days the only thing that seems large enough to fit Whitley is his enormous promise.

ISSUE | OBAMA Fait accompli rule President Obama's strategy to dominate Congress and the courts is to get an agenda item rolling by any means, knowing it will be difficult to stop. Examples include: passing Obamacare by changing Senate rules, after which the threat of extreme medical-insurance disruption influences the Supreme Court to allow it to continue; suspending border enforcement, scattering refugee children, and then arguing that returning them would overwhelm the system; and proposing legal status for illegal aliens, knowing that once it's in effect, it will be increasingly hard for the courts or Republicans to reverse.
