August XXVIth, MMXVII
Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder
The Right Hon. The Lord Earl Frederick North & many men/women of power have to have the want or driving "ambition" to get there. Especially political leaders (like the candidates now for the Federal New Democratic Leadership & the United Airlines Conservative Party Leadership here in Alberta & the upcoming municipal elections in October) & Freddy explains it rather aptly.
"Men may be popular without being ambitious, but there is hardly an ambitious man who does not try to be popular."
XIth Prime Minister,
