"One of the many major problems with governing people is that
of whom you get to do it; or rather of who manages to get 
people to let them do it to them. 
To summarize: it is a well-known fact that those people who 
must want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited
to do it.  
To summarize the summary: anyone who is capable of getting 
themselves made President should on no account be allowed to
do the job."
