Varadkar's redefining of Fine Gael is not as radical as first appears
The Taoiseach is trying to marry his new style of 'pop leadership' with old-school politics, writes Kevin Doyle
Life coaches will tell you to aim high in case you fall short. The theory is simple: you might not reach the stars but you'll definitely stretch yourself trying.
But it doesn't necessarily work in the political sphere. Aiming high in this world sounds good but will, in all likelihood, result in over-promising.
Yet it seems one of Leo Varadkar's many advisers has told him to apply the mantra and it is a dangerous game for the young Taoiseach. It will prove either brave or stupid - but we won't know which until after the next election.
