Hell, that's the driving theme of every U.S. Presidential candidate  
for my entire adult life so far.  "The other group has a guy that's a  
poor leader.  I'll be a better one."

You'd think ONE of them would realize how boring that gong is and  
voice some real goals!

(Sorry, off-topic... I know.)

It's not a faction -- it's human nature.   People think the grass is  
always greener on the other side.

Rising above that broken thought process is something few even  
attempt, this list having NUMEROUS examples of how unnatural it is, to  
do so.

The reality is that the grass only gets greener if you care enough to  
work on it.  The guys with the green grass did and didn't ask for  
"leadership" to approve or fund it.  They find their own ways.

Taking control of one's own actions and outcomes is somehow very  
difficult for a lot of people.  Whining is usually the end-result of  
them not being able to do it.
