The singer and social activist Pete Seeger - an ardent advocate of the uncomplicated - used to say: "Any darn fool can make something complex; it takes a genius to make something simple."

As is his wont, Mr Higgins is adding his own dimension to the Presidency, which has been evolving dramatically since first Mary Robinson and then Mary McAleese began pushing out the boundaries.
