I would agree that usually the best people to have in positions of power
are the ones that don't like power but are forced by circumstances to have
it, however there are exceptions; Churchill wanted and got to be Prime

less desirable state today if he had not.

drop in crime have the most undocumented immigrants. That doesn't sound
very hostile to me.
