In business and academia, looks matter. Business picks senior management primarily based on looks, doe the candidate look like a CEO? Does he (yes it's almost always a he) executive hair? In academia the problem is even worse. A college President is selected primarily on the basis of does he (yes it's almost always a he) look like a college President.
It is this reason that colleges are so poorly managed. Promoting on looks rather than ability is a recipe for disaster. So colleges are among the worst managed institutions not just in the United States, but in the entire world. Bloated costs, lower quality of education, rising costs, yep that's America's colleges in the 21st century.
So it is no surprise that the most shallow President ever elected is relying primarily on looks to choose his cabinet and other critical posts.
|Best Looking and Worst President|
Of course, this is somewhat of a surprise because Trump himself is the least looking President elect ever. Of course, that pales by the fact that he is the least qualified President elect ever. But one thing is certain, given the criteria that Trump is using disaster is just around the corner; no not prosperity, disaster. Mike Pence, whose looks were a big factor in his selection as VP was a disaster in Indiana, probably headed for electoral defeat until his silver hair won him the booby prize as VP elect.
