A few weeks ago saw the passing of U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California at the age of 90 years old.  Feinstein was the oldest member of the Senate, where she served since 1992.  Dianne held her seat longer than any other woman in history, or any senator from California.  Said James Sauls, her chief of staff, “Senator Feinstein was a force of nature …”  California Governor Gavin Newsom (#13 FCIR) added in a statement, “There is simply nobody who possessed the poise, gravitas, and fierceness of Dianne Feinstein.”

Yes, fierce and a force of nature, Feinstein was a formidable #15 FCIL.  A true-blue Democrat, she was a strong advocate for gun-control, women’s rights, and environmental issues.  Over the years, however, as California shifted continually Left, she was seen as somewhat moderate and old fashioned (she supported the death penalty, and still believed Americans should own guns).  Also, in quintessential #15 fashion, Feinstein held power to the very end, despite questions regarding her mental fitness, which in recent years appeared to be quickly waning (can anyone also say #15 Nancy Pelosi?).

“Toughness doesn’t have to come in a pinstripe suit,” Dianne once said.  Also, in typical #15 fashion (especially woman), she took time thinking through decisions, once stating, “Quick decisions are unsafe decisions.”

Before we go, BT enthusiasts, let us remind you that #15 FCILs are strongest in the Front-Left region of the brain, also known as the left prefrontal cortex.  It is the brain’s command-center for executive decision making.  As such, the “leadership” world of politics often attracts #15s, where they can take to that like a duck to water.  Whether it be Feinstein, Pelosi, Clinton, or possible-future-President Michelle Obama, never underestimate what a female or male #15 can achieve (sometimes at the cost of the those around them!).
