I think a president can only be as effective as the political system in which they are in. That is to say, becoming the president of Somalia is akin to being the general to a dysfunctional, poorly trained and inept army that was chosen based on tribe rather than merit.

Good luck to anyone who takes the job of president of Somalia.
