What do you say to this?

Barack Obama is an eloquent, brainy and likeable man with a fascinating biography. He is not George Bush. Those are great qualities. But they are not enough to lead America, let alone the world.

  • I think the leading the world comment refers to the larger role the United States plays in the global factors of existence--not necessarily "leader of the world". Countries all over the world look to the U.S. as a leader. I do think many countries expect our presidents to be world rulers (this would explain the near constant requests from other countries for our help).

  • He is not a leader of the world he is the leader of our country, and yes those are great attributes, and that is not all that makes this man, but it is a good start.

    He doesn't. This was an article written by a journalist in the UK. Just asking for critique on the views of an outsider looking in. So, are you saying perhaps some in other nations are expecting too much from our President?
