It was said that those who worked with President Dwight D. Eisenhower found him very bright, tough and commanding. But Ike liked to verbalize his leadership role in a softer way: He said “I am not one of the desk-pounding type that likes to stick out his jaw and look as if he is bossing the show. I would far rather get in the background and, recognizing the frailties and requirements of human nature, try to persuade a man to go along—because once I have persuaded him, he will stick. If I scare him, he will stay just as along as he is scared, and then he is gone.”
