Clinton, Obama, and Leadership

Regarding the issue of what to do re Michigan and Florida, and their delegates, Senators Clinton and Obama are showing precious little leadership… Both are running for President for goodness sake, and if elected she/he would be the leader of their party. Yet, at this point Senator Obama has said that he will “defer to” and “obey” the decision of the DNC (while trying his best to push in a particular direction). Ditto for Senator Clinton (while pushing in the opposite direction..).

As putative leaders of their party going for the top spot you would expect them to show more leadership on the issue and in devising a solution…. In matter of fact, it would have been far preferable if they had shown some leadership when the problem first manifested itself… But apparently that was asking too much…
