Politics on LeadHership

9 years ago

I'll start the week by stirring up a hornet's nest and talk politics. Last night, I watched some of the Compassion Forum on CNN at Messiah College. A debate, of sorts, on faith and values. John McCain was in abstentia (hum), so it was Obama and Clinton. What I saw of Obama was very impressive. I'm not politically-savvy, so help me: the candidates come across SO well-versed....is it just lip service? I mean, gee, if every candidate says the things we want to hear, what makes one candidate better (or different) than the other? Based on what I've seen, I think I'd be more compelled to vote for the candidate who occasionally blew it. Who fumbled over his/her words. Who had a piece of broccoli stuck between his/her teeth. Who said to one of Wolf Blitzer's questions, "Gee, Wolf, I have no freakin' clue, but that was a great question!" Is it bad to want a candidate who's real vs. "perfect?"
