Politician vs. CEO for president? I'd expect a politician to be more successful. A CEO is used to running things his own way and having his orders followed without question. A president has to be able to compromise and cooperate with Congress to get important legislation passed. While the president does have a lot of unilateral authority in running the executive agencies (e.g., NLRB -- been following the Boeing case?), even those agencies have to operate within the limits placed on them by Congress.
I'd rather vote for a politician who shares the same political viewpoints as me (fiscal conservative, libertarian), AND will also have the ability to work with Congress, dems and reps.
