Obama comes down from the hill to endorse Biden after the battle is over

Obama finally shows up with an endorsement when it no longer matters. How cynical is that? A profile in courage. Bold. Audacious. Nervy.

Leadership definitions:

  • "If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader." -John Quincy Adams
  • "Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail." -Ralph Waldo Emerson
  • "The very essence of leadership is that you have to have vision. You can't blow an uncertain trumpet." -Theodore M. Hesburgh
  • "The pessimist complains about the wind. The optimist expects it to change. The leader adjusts the sails.” -John Maxwell

And this is the guy who sold America on the "vision thing?"

  • I suppose Obama would disagree with you. But the important thing is that Biden defeats that 'jerk' Trump, isn't it?

  • Leading from behind is an Obama trademark.

  • In reply to Richard Davis:

    In a battle, that's were the generals usually are.

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    Which makes the case for so many modern generals not leading but executing. Take that whichever way you wish.

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    True. All of the greatest battlefield generals in history, including Alexander the Great, Napoleon Bonaparte, the Duke of Wellington, U.S. Grant and George Patton all led from the rear. Battles are likely to turn out better if the commander lives through them.
