There may have been. But that still doesn't negate what I said, Christopher. None of the people I knew wanted his job. They felt his job shouldn't exist.

And no, it's certainly not always the implied corollary. I might think I could do a better job at being a Senator than Harry Reid, but I don't want his job in the slightest. I know I could be a better administrative assistant than the one my doctor currently has, but I do not want her job in the slightest.
