OP-ED | The Test of Our Times

In politics and government everyone always has an opinion. Every political campaign staff is filled with self-styled strategists whether that is their assigned role or not. Every government office is full of people who want to debate and present policy alternatives; always willing to argue their own point of view regardless of the point of view of the elected official who actually holds the job. Often, in the background, unseen, unheard, and viewed with some level of contempt, is the person who actually knows how to get the work done.
