Peggy Noonan and America's Leadership Crisis

Peggy Noonan, former speech writer for Ronald Reagan, is catching on that America has trouble with its leaders. Well, she is beginning to catch on. She wrote an article in the July 14, 2007 issue of the Wall Street Journal entitled, "American Grit", and said this:

"Americans ... are disappointed, by both teams and both sides. Some part of them thinks no matter who is president he will not protect them from forces at work in the world. Some part of them fears that when history looks back on this moment, on the past few presidents and the next few, it will say: Those men were not big enough for the era."

Well said! Are leaders are inadequate, all of them, and this era is dangerous. We are in a leadership crisis. Peggy Noonan is beginning to understand the problem.
