Bob Herbert nails it in his op-ed piece this morning: " More Than Charisma."
Here he is in his own words:
"I’ve seen charismatic politicians and pretty families come and go like sunrises and sunsets over the years. There was something more that was making people go ga-ga over Obama. Something deeper.
We’ve been watching that something this week, and it’s called leadership. Mr. Obama has been feeding the almost desperate hunger in this country for mature leadership, for someone who is not reckless and clownish, shortsighted and self-absorbed."
I couldn't agree more.
This is a must read.
