Not in the gene pool
Q: Rand Paul, son of former presidential candidate Ron Paul, has rocketed to national prominence with his win in Kentucky's Senate primary this week. Would his victory have been possible without his father's popularity and name recognition? Can any aspect of leadership be inherited?
No. Although many might attribute a leader's power and success to inherited traits -- good looks, great smile; being tall; race; gender; their daddy's good name --leadership is not part of the gene pool. If it were, Congress would have legalized human cloning a long, long time ago.
