James Cameron's Lesson for Politics

Imagine, if you will, that instead of screenwriters crafting movies you had political parties crafting public policy.  These parties know they're going to be authors of some policy pieces or leading the process at one given moment of time or another, but aren't quite sure which during the planning phase.

While each party brings a different perspective to the table, they all know and believe in the bigger picture they're contributing to.  They're passionate about getting it right, because they know what an important story they cal tell - what a positive impact they can have.

... or as Cameron has done: plan really far ahead, accounting for countless details and, naturally, leaving lots of notes.  

The goal couldn't be to get ahead as quickly as possible, leaving others behind; it would have to be the other thing.
