So, if I have nothing to hide I have nothing to fear? Besides, no one gives 110% every day. If they did, they'd be burned out in a year....

Even giving 90-100% every day will also burn you out but i'd say in a only few months/weeks, you can't be productive always running at full capacity, we're human not computers, this is why we sleep, we need time to stop and take a break and even do something unrelated to work so that we can perform better when we are working (like when trying to solve a problem you're stuck on, it helps to go do something else for 15-20 minutes then come back to it.. seems to give a fresher perspective).

Sadly....we never have and likely never WILL have any genius types running for president, as that they're too smart to get caught up and mess with all the BS that is politics....

More likely that geniuses don't speak common enough or look best when on TV, and they certainly don't appeal to the common denominator that democratic politics demand.

i'd mod you insightful if i had points.. i think this sums up all of the comments so far that i've seen here... people bitch about it should be this or they should ahve done that, but at it's core is their inability to actually know what people want, the constant stream of love/hate from every change tells them nothing and they have no way to be truely objective about it since the only feedback that gets noticed is the ones that yell the loudest and they can never be satisfied.
