Why Do Candidates With High Integrity Fail in American Politics?

I just read a post on another blog asking the question, "What does it say about American politics when the people with the most integrity flop fantastically? "

What I believe it says is that far too many people are unclear about what integrity really is. For most people, integrity is a vague and abstract philosophical concept rather than the concrete and actionable way of life that it can become once we understand just a little bit about our three core drives for personal authenticity, connection with others and having positive impact in the world.

3D Integrity lives at the intersection of these three core drives. The more the American people, and people from all countries around the world, understand this, the more easily they will be able to spot true integrity in their political candidates and other leaders.

My new and highly acclaimed new book, The New IQ: How Integrity Intelligence Serves You, Your Relationships and Our World provides this clarity that is especially important during a presidential election year.
