Leadership, according to US News and World Report

"Leadership, as the public tells the pollsters, is in disappointingly short supply. So the 25 people profiled in the following pages are a heartening exception to the rule." Article.

My (quick) two-cents (I haven't actually read the articles yet):

  • Rick Warren is the only religious figure on the list. Is his inclusion more about book sales or leadership?
  • Techies abound, with Google, Apple, Ebay, and Microsoft represented. More evidence of revolution?
  • Media moguls include Oprah, Fox News, and C-Span (!). What am I missing by not watching C-Span?
  • Public officials are all minorities and/or women, except for the lone, active military figure. Political correctness or coincidence?
  • I really need to meet Geoffrey Canada. Anyone know him?
