"Why are our politicians so full of themselves?"

Another excellent Peggy Noonan column:

“How exactly does it work? How does legitimate self-confidence become wildly inflated self-regard? How does self respect become unblinking conceit? How exactly does one's character become destabilized in Washington? …”

“…What is wrong with them? This is not a rhetorical question. I think it is unspoken question No. 1 as Americans look at so many of the individuals in our government. What is wrong with them? “ (from Peggy Noonan in the Wall Street Journal)

I always love her stuff!
