A New Definition Of Leadership

 

Leadership apparently means doing whatever the voters want, even if you know it's stupid:

"My campaign is about solutions, not speeches," Clinton said, criticizing Obama for opposing a summer suspension -- which she and McCain back -- of the federal gasoline tax. "I happen to believe that when you're a leader, you should lead on behalf of the people you represent."

--Jonathan Chait
