Your Highness

Your Highness

What politicians seem not to understand is that when they begin every speech with the clichéd, “What the American people need….” is that they’re talking to “the American people” and what we’re hearing is what that politician needs in order to be elected.

Lincoln Steffens: “If we had had good kings, we’d all be monarchists.”

If the metric for a successful office-holder were accomplishing the campaign promises made to be elected, most of them would fail. Dismally.

Our system seems to reward behaviors needed to be elected, but not behaviors needed to govern well, which are distinctly different attributes.
