re: U.S. Presidential Election 2000, w/ thanks to Stephan

On my arrival in the United States I was surprised to find so much distinguished talent among the subjects, and so little among the heads of the Government. It is a well-authenticated fact, that at the present day the most able men in the United States are very rarely placed at the head of affairs; [...] The race of American statesmen has evidently dwindled most remarkably in the course of the last fifty years.

Alexis de Toqueville, Democracy In America, Volume 1, Ch. XIII, 1835.
