People Skills And Politics!

Today's post is directed to the campaigning politicians opting for the office of the Presidency. Last week there was a debate in Florida and afterwards a straw poll vote. The surprise winner was Herman Cain, the former CEO of Godfather's Pizza, but maybe it wasn't that much of a surprise. The reason Herman stood out above all the other candidates on stage was a simple strategy that went far over the heads of those politicians, pundits, and media personalities. He simply ignored the opportunity to pick at the others on stage and offered a sound solution to our current problems. He understands dragging down another person to highlight yourself presents to others an obvious lack of people skills. It also gives fuel to the opposition, (which wasn't really those others on stage), and the media to continue the exploitation of the conservative movement. Did anyone else notice that all those other debate contestants were, or are politicians? They all jumped right into the fray of highlighting each other's shortcomings and failed to offer valid solutions. They chose to assault each other's style and ignore the problems at hand. I feel this is why Mr Cain attracted the votes of the Florida straw poll. To me this was hardly a surprise, but a reward for the kind of behavior a leader needs to exhibit. Let's hope it's contagious!

God Bless!
Capt. Bill
