Story when Bhishma makes a comparison between Yudhishthira & Duryodhana

According to Mahabharata, when Bhishma has to pick Dhritarashtra’s successor, he mentions to Vidura many of Duryodhana’s positive qualities in comparison to Yudhishthira. Having spent so many years in the forest, Yudhishthira doesn’t have Duryodhana’s experience, military expertise, education, and courtly manners. Bhishma adds that Duryodhana is loved by the people, while Yudhishthira is an unknown quantity to them. However, Bhishma ultimately selects Yudhishthira, telling Vidura that in his heart, Duryodhana is a power-hungry, vitriolic individual, while at his core, Yudhishthira is a good man who cares tremendously for his people.
