Hold Me Accountable: Wise words from Wilson… not that Wilson, the other one

Sometimes politicians get it right, and sometimes politicians — even 96 years later — just don't get it. Consider the words of Woodrow Wilson after he took the oath of office as Governor of New Jersey on January 17, 1911:

"Back of all reform lies the method of getting it. Back of the question what you want lies the fundamental quest of all government: how are you going to get it? How are you going to get public servants who will obtain it for you? How are you going to get genuine representatives who will serve your real interests and not their own, or the interests of some special group or body of your fellow citizens whose power is of the few and not of the many?"
