Why does Rosh give up on Samson? What does this suggest about leaders?

Rosh loses interest in Samson because Samson turns to Daniel as his liberator and savior. Samson, despite his enormous strength, is, just as Daniel is, "soft," which is a quality that Rosh hates. As a leader, Rosh insists on blind commitment and complete loyalty; he does not want to be questioned; he enjoys power. Although he does not speak, Samson implicitly questions Josh's authority to lead and undermines his power by giving his loyalty and love to Daniel.
