An appropriate extract from Douglas Adams (_The Restaurant at the End
of the Universe_):

 It is a well known fact that the people who must want to rule are, ipso
 facto, those least suited to do it... anyone who is capable of getting
 themselves elected President should on no account be allowed to do
 the job.

Substitute "President" with your favorite political office...
