Hmmmm....Well not buying this one Scott. The election of 2012 stands as stark testament to a REALLY bad development in our politics - the win at any cost view by committed partisans. People wrote about the prickly Filner personality or the scandals but really very little coverage of a key and immutable fact - Bob Filner had never managed more than about a dozen people. Never. And he was now "interviewing" for a job that involves management of 10,000+. There was minimal coverage of this. I can't think of an article about how Filner ran meetings, how he was viewed by former staff, whether he had groomed people in their careers, etc. etc, etc....
