    Trouble is that acquiring wealth, power, prestige is the human condition.  Everybody problem tells themselves once they get them they will do some good.

    Kennedy started out with wealth, power, prestige so he was able to skip the acquisition phase and go right to doing some good and make a difference, leave it a better place.  Aside from that, just a better person who exemplified what Obama was talking about in the need for government leaders to have empathy with people.

    With Atwater, the real lesson there is that there will always be Lee Atwater's around (the screaming death panelists) so learn to deal with them. Before Atwater there was Nixon and before Nixon, McCarthy. Someone will always be filling Atwater's role.
