Let me clarify...

The power may be very real, but I mean "job" in terms of something an individual does to procure money, in which case $400k or the $40k Dr. Paul was going to take was arbitrary from a paycheck point of view.

And from a statist view, they are never looking for somebody genuinely competent at being an executive. But it would seem like that would be a smart thing if you were happily and willingly awarding power. It seems like want a moral statement.

From a libertarian view, the best we could hope for is someone inconsequential at th post, or somehow get our guy, or preferably not have one at all. I agree with the "revolution" pov as I remember from reading it.
