Original post on Dreamwidth - there are comments there.

I do think the desire to be a politician ought to be a good enough reason to never vote for that person.

That really is daft. Being a politician is a lot of hard, long and mostly thankless work. If you're going to do it at all well, you have to actually want to do it. The idea that you would get better job performance out of someone who doesn't want to do the job is silly, and something no one would say about any other sort of job. I mean, I dare say there are problems with software that arise from the fact that software is developed by the kinds of people that want to be software developers, but that doesn't mean you'd get better software by replacing them all with people who don't want to be software developers.
