Goh's initial evaluation in political circles was that he lacks the assertiveness for politics.
Supposing Park was the GNP candidate, she and Goh would be neck and neck, with Goh mustering support from 29.8 percent of respondents and Park from 27.4 percent.

 Flying Yangban: Goh Kun: A Korean Cincinnatus?
Goh Kun is a former prime minister, governor of South Cholla Province, two-time mayor of Seoul, three-time cabinet member (transportation, agriculture and government administration) and of course, acting president during President Roh's impeachment (as if we could forget).
Such a draft Goh campaign needs to be run by someone intelligent with a lot of ambition; someone who is has some pull in the GNP but who currently lacks the gravitas to rally sufficient support for himself; someone who wants the top job but who is young enough to wait his turn until 2012.
Goh's ability, built from his long experience, shone particularly during the 64 days he was acting president after President Roh was impeached and suspended from office in April pending the Constitutional Court ruling that allowed him to take oevr again at Cheong Wa Dae.

Goh, who served as acting president for two months during Roh's impeachment trial, resigned on Monday as he declined the last of repeated requests from the presidential Blue House to nominate three new cabinet ministers.
Roh is expected to nominate Goh's successor at the end of the week, another Blue House official said.
