The popularist is a lute, changing tune when the wind changes direction. They are an ego-addict, a verbal chameleon without underpinning values to guide and anchor. Give me a leader with integrity, with gravitas, one with an intellect able to weave logic and empathy into a solid pathway for the nation. Show me a leader well versed in the philosophy of love and what that really is... show me a good role model of adulthood. It costs to be a real leader, a hero type, and that emotional toll is what creates the aura of gravitas, somber and serious.
