Are the leading heads of government and industry in fact psychopaths?

Certain characteristics of psychopaths would certainly lend themselves to climbing the corporate ladder, where cold-blooded ambition combined with superficial charm is a distinct advantage. Some undoubtedly are. Others, clearly, are not. Comparisons of the former ENRON CEO and individuals like Bill Gates and Warren Buffett come immediately to mine.
