After going through the archives of RON videos and the use of 'and' as a connector here is my doubt:


A President entering the final two years of a second term is likely to be at a severe disadvantage and is often unable to carry out a legislative program.

AND should connect independent IDEAS. However, in this sentence the disadvantage is not followed by what type of disadvantage , but it is explicitly stated.


A President Blah Blah.........is likely to be at a severe disadvantage, Something about disadvantage.

Enlighten Plz !!
