Is Phil Bredesen kinder and smarter than you and me?

Or, while we are discussing the topic, is Bill Haslam or Ron Ramsey or Zach Wamp or Bill Gibbons more noble and worthy of praise than other Tennesseans? What about Jimmy Naifeh or Kent Williams or Mike Turner or Gary Odom or Jason Mumpower...are they morally and/or intellectually superior to you and me?

Do they care more about their fellow men and women than you and me?
Are their good intentions more worthy of implementation than mine and yours?

There are scoundrels to be sure in Tennessee, just look Here, but are politicians likely to be more virtuous and smarter than you and me? Should we turn over to them decisions which we would otherwise make for ourselves because of their great wisdom and moral strength?
