“Let’s start by gazing in the mirror. The looking glass never lies, and it reflects two things about our beloved country:

We have allowed ourselves to become paralyzed.

And, worse, we are so used to being poorly led that we refuse to lead ourselves.

How did we let this state of affairs happen to us? Well, to begin with, we haven’t chosen the right leaders for the right times—and that used to be our talent.

Could these times be any more uncertain? Imagine piloting the ship of state through all the global and domestic cross currents we face today. Leadership in uncertain times must be different than when the path is clear.”
