What is most important for America and the next president? For me, the answer is obvious — we have lacked leadership in both parties, and because of this leadership deficit, the American people live in a nation less safe and in a world that is more uncertain. Americans deserve real leadership in the White House, and the choices Americans have in this presidential campaign are clear.
What passes for leadership in Washington is really more about position, seniority and the influences of special interests than it is about achieving goals, meeting mission requirements or serving the people. Most elected officials in Washington have little in the way of leadership skills. Rather, most have been career politicians who have focused on self-interest rather than the interests of their constituents or American citizens. It's time for a change.
