Problem is, people with humility don't run for office.

I think you can expand that to cover most positions of leadership.

I don't know if all leaders are devoid of humility, but it takes a certain personality-type to tell a group of people "do what I say and things will work out", especially in matters of life and death.

I've often wondered what goes through the mind of a general on the eve of a battle, knowing that under the best of circumstances, at least a few of his soldiers will die.

Great Leaders are often lauded as those who are willing and able to make the difficult decisions that have impact on others' lives...

I think that says it all right there...

As i watch Mitt all i keep hearing in my head is the Springsteen lyric from Badlands: Poor Man wanna be rich, Rich man wanna be king...

The only song I think of when I watch Mitt is the Mormon song from South Park. DUMB, DUMB, DUMB, DUMB.
