I’ve seen this unfold
in corporate
and I’m watching this unfold
in the Presidential Election.

One candidate
(for President
or a job
or whatever the competition is)
isn’t the most intelligent person
in the group.
The other candidates
allow him to talk,
thinking he’ll blunder
and eliminate himself
from consideration.

And he usually does blunder,
many times,
but offsetting this
is the fact that he has the floor.
He has more face time
with people.
People might not respect him
but they know him.

MANY people
are afraid of the unknown.
They’ll align with
‘the devil they know’
over a stranger.

Go ahead.
Allow your competition
to make a fool of himself
but ensure
you have as much time
with the decision makers
as he does.
