But if you were to say "TrueBrit, you can either be one or the other, and you have no option to go live on a mountain, in the snow and the peace and quiet!", then I would have to go for leadership. Why? Because at least in that position I could do something good for other people, while receiving nothing in return but the joy of knowing that lives would improve as a result of it.

Obama was a very weak president, but I think he knew exactly what he was doing and how it was going to affect things. I think he was very smart, but thats what made him more dangerous as the leader of this country. He was smart for all the wrong reasons. He knew he was destroying things and setting our country back many many years. He also knew he was giving our intelligence to the muslim brotherhood and he didn't care, and his name was written all over the classified emails on Hillary's server, and he wouldn't touch that with a 10 foot pole. He literally made mistakes on purpose because no president in the history of this country could be that stupid and inept, and he was a lawyer. He made friends with foreign leaders that didn't have our best interests at heart, and they still don't, and for all of his talk about transparency he was very secretive. This last week it was reported that he is also getting 400k for a speaking fee for wall street insiders, just like Hillary did.
In contrast, Trump is a very strong president, and what he has done so far (or tried to do) has proven his resolve and dedication to do what is best for the American people, and not like Obama or Clinton who believe in selling our country out to the highest bidder. So yes, I do believe knowing how difficult your job is, is considered more of an asset than a liability, and its on par with knowing just exactly what your dealing with.
