leadership thrust upon them

It is a curious thing, Harry, but perhaps those who are best suited to power are those who have never sought it. Those who, like you, have leadership thrust upon them, and take up the mantle because they must, and find to their own surprise that they wear it well.

A beautiful description, but not necessarily correct. Just because one seeks leadership does not mean one is unqualified to lead. Ambition does not imply corruption nor does lack of ambition imply an inability to corrupt.
