    as to how Senator Palpatine from that tiny planet of Naboo suddenly rose to become Galactic Emperor so swiftly.  I mean, it's one thing if they're from a major planet like Coruscant.  But Naboo??  I mean, he was totally ineffective to stop the Trade Federation's blockade of his own planet.  He was an ineffective Senator in an ineffective Galactic Senate.  The only reason he gained power was because Chancellor Valorum was so powerless to begin with, and he got some of the sympathy vote from the blockade to succeed him.  But sheesh, that's like the Peter Principle in action there.  I still don't really get what the other Senators saw in him.  It's like he pulled some kind of Jedi mind trick on them to get them to vote for him.
