  • If you can't describe what you are doing as a process, you don't know what you're doing.

An honest person - no matter what it might cost him or her. I want them to be honest - plain and simple.

From there, everything else can be achieved.

Actually, I disagree with this as an attribute that would be necessary, or even desirable, in the job description. Government is not a business and has no business trying to operate as one. Leadership skills that might apply in business do not naturally lend themselves to politics or governing.

The electorate are not 'customers'.


Theoretically, I agree.

However, as a manager or executive you have to be able to organize people, deal with budgets and dead-lines, and most importantly be accountable to someone (your boss and/or owners/shareholders) if you fail.

That's one of my biggest faults with Obama. He's never been in a position of accountability. Nothing where if he fails or comes in late or over budget etc. he gets fired or at least demoted or some other drastic penalty.

The problem is that the position gives one person so much power.  A normal, well-adjusted person most likely would not want the job.

You have to have delusions of grandeur to even think about becoming president.

I am another anonymous face in the crowd. I am just another tiny wheel in the machinery of the world I live in.

That's why we have a 3-legged system for checks&balances.

Problem arises when 2 of the 3 legs work together to undermine the system!
