I agree that leaders who are calm and in control are those I most respect. I also think we miss out on learning from our history as that subject seems to be less important in teaching our present generation. It was a pleasure for me to read about and learn from some of the greats in our past such as Daniel Webster and Henry Clay. The lessons from that era are ones we need to inject into our process today where debate does not degrade into who can shout their message the loudest and with the most negativity. Another important leader I respect from our time is John Warner who looked at the issues from how they served the people and not necessarily a cause.
