What's more important in a leader? Their morality, driving motivations, or policies?
SInce their moral standards will drive the motivations behind their policy making one could say that morality is the most important.
That said, when considering who to follow, it's important to consider the definition of the word morality in its context and ponder the questions that naturally come up about whether a person can be moral in certain settings and not in others.
Once that's done we would have to give careful consideration to a person's background and ask whether they've learned from mistakes or dug their heals in about bad attitudes/behaviors.
At that point we might be able to make a better choice about who to choose as a leader.
If they are lying and corrupt, their official policies are irrelevant because they won't do what they promise and what is best for them or their paying parties.

In a sense, they are similar to Aspiration, except that they are of the world and related to the external world. Aspiration is the tiny flame inside us ... the burning intensity for Light, more Light. It is our yearning, earnestness, longing or search for meaning... and inner driving force which will ultimately lead to morality and motivations.
Like the plant, all things begin in seed form and slowly becomes a banyan tree, not the other way around. Much Peace.

What's more important to you, quantity of life or quality of life?It seems like everyone is only concerned with living longer. Quality of life issues (especially at old age) aren't often discussed. Would you want to be kept alive even if your body couldn't function anymore?
