This IS a tough one!! Thanks for posting.

There is also a subtle change of meaning -

great leaders were those who were unemotional, rational, and even mechanistic. => seems to imply that anyone who was unemotional yada yada was a great leader

great leaders were unemotional, rational, and even mechanistic. => seems to imply that great leaders were unemotional etc.
