DescriptionI have worked in and observed the political world since 1984, and during those years, I have learned that very few people in coveted elected positions truly take advantage of the opportunity to seize the day, or moment, and do something extraordinary. In politics, it is an interesting case study as you observe our elected officials sacrifice much and work so hard to get elected and then waste the opportunity. What is that all about?

As I have written about in the past, running for office, or serving in a consequential appointed position, is an honor and rarity. Few in those positions ever fully take advantage and do something ground-breaking—far too many are happy playing it safe and hedging until the next election.
