Why do we expect our leaders to be (idealistically) saints (meaning perfect)?
I mean these people are human (FLAWED) just like everybody else. Is it just that many of us are too weak minded to just focus on a man or woman's acts or qualities of leadership? I swear it seems like every time someone is in a position of leadership big or small...that we ascribe superhuman qualities to them. And as soon as these qualities prove to not be real as far as that individual goes, all of a sudden the masses decry that they are not a good leader. I'm talking stuff that HAS NOTHING TO DO with his or her job.
Could you imagine if you had to deal with such scrutiny while doing your job?
This blog came from the revelation of why there are so many phony politicians in the world...and it's because people tend to care about shit that has nothing to do with the job at hand.
