As I look over all of the potential candidates for 2012 I find myself very discouraged. I look at them and I wonder 'Who of this bunch really, truly has the wisdom, knowledge, experience, and leadership capabilities to lead the US in its current crisis?' None of the seven acknowledged contenders from the GOP seem to fit the bill. The current president has clearly proven that he cannot do the job. Laying aside the prejudices, party labels, and media opinions is they anyone, among that list or others, who could be the leader that is needed at this time? I don't have an answer. Is there anyone like that, or are we just going to elect another popularity contest winner?
