Re: Leadership in government
Another pearl of wisdom:  "Control is not leadership; management is not leadership; leadership is leadership. If you seek to lead, invest at least 50% of your time in leading yourself -- your own purpose, ethics, principles, motivation, conduct."  It is important to have your own moral compass and let that compass guide you in the decisions you need to make.

Leadership in government
There are some great pearls of wisdom here:

> If you seek to lead, invest at least 50% of your time in leading yourself -- your own purpose, ethics, principles, motivation, conduct. Invest at least 20% leading those with authority over you and 15% leading your peers.

> Below-average leaders do below-average things. Average leaders do average things. Excellent leaders do excellent things. 

Add to that the importance of governance, when leading in government. It takes extraordinary collaboration to get things done in government. Those who've tried to lead where the governance structure is broken are likely to face a wall, not just an uphill battle.
