@Ralph I agree that passion and enthusiasm are the criteria I go by.  My vote goes to those who are hungry and can't contain that feeling!

OK... I know I am supposed to be all unbiased and everything, but I have a serious affection for enthusiasm and passion when it comes to selling cars... and just about anything else for that matter.  Watch this ADM Boot Camp Scholarship entry video from Ken Sparks and see if you like the passionate enthusiasm, excitement and his "I Want Boot Camp" at the end.  If so, then show your support by clicking the "Promote" thumbs-up button immediately below the video description on the page where this clip resides:
