Decades ago I submitted a resolution to our state medical society. A young specialist sought me out, told me he had travelled to the annual meeting specifically to support the resolution, and stressed how important it was and how he appreciated the opportunity to speak in favor of it and support its passage. When he took the floor, he strongly opposed the resolution! A group from a specialty organization had gotten to him and convinced him of the adverse political ramifications were this resolution to pass. You can imagine my surprise at his about face!
