In response to my reference earlier today to Sen. Obama’s seemingly tremendous self-regard, some writers have asked if that isn’t de rigueur for politicians. And I agree, 100%.

Sen. McCain has a hugely healthy ego as well, of course. While Obama’s is criticized as coolly arrogant, McCain’s is assailed as blindly self-righteous.

This reminded me that almost 10 years ago (yikes!) I did an NPR commentary about how those who think they should be President have egos so enormous, the decision to run for the office should be in itself a disqualification.
