                 Definitely we need these criteria.  Congrats.

                 However, I would prefer a full "spelling"" of 2.a and 2.b. that is:

                             >   someone who understands and practice relationship dynamics,

                             >   commands support among his peers and subordinates,

                             >   a leader who is open to limitations

                             >   someone who welcomes changes,

                             >   one who produces results

                             >   an ethical leader

                             >   a very idealistic criteria " selfless"

                 Number 6 must take a bigger weight.  Long distance " love affair" is never



                 These criteria must not end in our cyberspace.  Let us involve the four

                 walls of Tanco Hall and the wailing characters attending COMESA so that it

            Note: COMESA stands for Committee on Medical Services and Accreditation.
