Being a Leader

This story details the extent to which Hillary Clinton's stance on the Iraq war is at odds with that of many in her party.

It will be interesting to see what she does, especially given that American voters will have to be assured that a female leader is a particularly strong person before they will elect her.

So she has a choice: Does she flip flop, obfuscate and try to have it both ways in the finest Clintonian tradition? Or does she actually have the guts to show some leadership and stick to a consistent, coherent position?

Like it or hate it, President Bush has outlined a clear policy, and he has stuck with what he believes to be right. That's what leaders do. Now we'll see whether Senator Clinton is a leader, or simply another leftist politician who wants a promotion.
