New Senator's Ambition to be First: Misplaced?

Dear Source,
I have admired Senator-elect Terrence "Positive" Nelson's spiritedness, but cannot understand his ambition or expectation to be the top vote-getter. What does it really matter where an aspirant for political office places? The only thing that matters now is his performance as a senator and the level of service and leadership he provides to the people of the Virgin Islands.
