Poor leading the poor? Are we nuts?

Singapore Punggol by-election is looming. News are aplenty on this event. Few caught my attention, as well as the comments. The sentiment that most perplexed me is "only the poor will understand and fight for the poor, whereas rich are bad".

What? Are you serious? Isn't it akin to the poor leading the poor?

Mind you, rich and successful people comes from poor family background too, and the hurdles and hardship they scaled in order to reach that state is worth emulating. I believe Dr Koh is such people.

For me, I'm sure I want a leader who can guide me to success rather than someone who "understand" my hardship but clueless of what to do about it.
