  •  Let me be more clear and finish saying why it's.. (0+ / 0-)

    ..a good question.
    Because it flips the long held republican leadership meme: 'that the US HAS to be the leader by making all others follow what we do and never the other way around.

    In this case, true leadership would be going against that established position of aggression and instead got with the program(s) that the rest of the world would (if the scenario mentioned in the first part of my comment were the way things were - that the US was alone in avoiding real action on climate change - eg.) is doing,  or any easy habit to break -> always having to prove your powerfulness by refusing to admit that other countries might have better ideas or are ahead on their policies about global climate chande or health care etc.

    Hope that makes more sense
