More About Bad Leadership

As a follow-on to my post about poor corporate leadership, this past weekend we have seen plenty of examples or poor political leadership. David Brooks, who is a conservative columnist for the New York Times writes (sorry login required):

This generation of political leaders is confronting a similar situation, and, so far, they have failed utterly and catastrophically to project any sense of authority, to give the world any reason to believe that this country is being governed. Instead, by rejecting the rescue package on Monday, they have made the psychological climate much worse.

The American century was created by American leadership, which is scarcer than credit just about now.
