You’ve all heard my theory of the presidency. Anyone who wants to be president is automatically disqualified by that desire. Imagine my surprise when I found out that a former president was of the same opinion, so much so that he wasn’t even a candidate at the 1880 convention that nominated him.
The book I’m currently reading has this quote:
“I have so long and so often seen the evil effects of the presidential fever upon my associates and friends that I am determined that it shall not seize me. In almost every case, it impairs if it does not destroy, the usefulness of its victim.”
Who would YOU like to find out agrees with you?
