Sadly, the truth is, there aren't many people who can be put in high positions who won't start thinking highly of themselves.

I haven't always been warmly welcomed for holding my conservative positions in Hollywood. Then again, I've never been very good at being politically correct either, on or off screen. So why start now?
Many people around the President have sizeable egos before entering government, some with good reason. Their new positions will do little to moderate their egos.
Sensible and responsible women do not want to vote. The relative positions to be assumed by man and woman in the working out of our civilization were assigned long ago by a higher intelligence than ours.
There may be as much nobility in being last as in being first, because the two positions are equally necessary in the world, the one to complement the other.
Jose Ortega y Gasset
