The presidency is a symbolic, moral job

The presidency is a symbolic, moral job, in the sense that the person who takes it is making (faking) some moral high ground and the people voting are making a moral decision.

If the job was really about finding somebody who was super-capable, we'd come up with a NBA basketball salary of $70MM per year and get Jack Welch out of retirement or reanimate Steve Jobs or find some real operational maestro to get the job done properly.
