It's about the followership stupid

Tennessee political flashback - September 30, 2002.
Van Hilleary - now running for the U.S. Senate, then running for Governor.
In a rare moment of eloquence, Hilleary said during a debate:
"The first thing a leader needs to be is to be able to follow. Followership needs to be learned by a leader before they become a leader because then you can emphathize with those who you purport to lead."
My son's pet hamster couldn't have said it any better.
