Hello Izarith. Thank you for your reply.
I can't quite fit the candidate into the role of the ear of corn.
A candidate is subject to review and just beginning his initiation; an ear of corn is one that is ripe and mature. It seems incongruent to me that 'ear of corn' would be a proper metaphor for one who is just beginning and is not fully grown.
I think this mystery needs further exploration.
