What define a strong editor?

Something I've been thinking about a lot recently are the differences between a 'strong' editor and an editor who can comfortably put together a timeline.

The reason i want peoples opinion is because i might be applying for an internship and the person they are looking for has to be a 'strong' editor. What defines a strong editor? What do you guys think the standard would be?

Everyones opinions are helpful!!

This usually means an editor who can tell a visual story with the footage they are given, and in some cases they want an editor who can do basic motion-graphics techniques for transitions and titles, etc...

A good editor should be able to suggest some options for presentation of the footages that director and DOP has worked on. The word options is very important because a director would already have something or the other in his/mind. These days directors know editing themselves. An editor should treat the footages like his baby and should be rational about cutting the footages long or short.
