You know, the "Ghandi VS Stalin" type graphs are amusing because, in several cases, they leave out a factor that is more important than what they represent.

They show various leaders as we know them to be after they were elected/assumed power/staged a junta, what ever means.

What the graphs should show, to have relevance to politics, is what they PROMISED the people BEFORE they assumed power. Knowing what they did after obtaining power is somewhat less important than understanding what the people THOUGHT they were getting.
