How being President is different from being a CEO

I've talked before about the difference in leadership styles between President Obama and some of our new Republican governors. Many of the later (ie, Governor Rick Scott of Florida) want to tout their CEO experience as somehow qualifying them for political leadership. And of course, now we have Donald Trump suggesting the same thing (when he isn't too busy touting conspiracy theories). We'll leave aside the business failures of these men (Trump with his multitude of bankruptcies and Scott running a company that was convicted of the largest Medicare fraud in the country's history) and simply focus on the proposition of whether or not experience as a CEO is anything like being President or Governor. PespsiCO Chairman & CEO Indra Nooyi destroys the premise.
