Being in politics is like being a football coach. You have to be smart enough to understand the game, and dumb enough to think it's important.
Being humble matters.
If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.
The supreme quality for leadership is unquestionably integrity. Without it, no real success is possible, no matter whether it is on a section gang, a football field, in an army, or in an office.
