  •  No problem. But, it seems that if you are going (0+ / 0-)

    to ask people's opinions of effectiveness of leadership, you should ask them what they think true leadership is.  The right wing is gushing over Putin because he steps all over his internal enemies invades other countries.  They never imagine that they would be the ones being stepped on.  So they ask for bullies, get bullies, and cry when they asked for.

    Or you can ask people how they think a democracy works.  It seems quite a bit of people think a voting booth is a wishing well, where you make your wish, walk away, and don't come back for 2-4 years.  Or maybe they think voting is like casting a spell where, since they voted for someone, that person will do what they want, not what the person campaigned on.  Or maybe they would rather vote for the person who wins, not the person who will actually do them any favors.

    Simply saying people are whining for leadership isn't saying much.

    People who think politics is stupid are doomed to be ruled by stupid people.
