From the WSJ article in 2009:

The Gift has been good for Mr. Obama. But in a still-dangerous world, in which one's listeners now have names like Ahmadinejad, Kim Jong Il, Putin, Hu Jintao, Netanyahu, Sarkozy and Merkel, the costs for the rest of us of being "misinterpreted" for a compulsive lack of clarity could be high.

As back in January 2007, the key question remains: Is this Hamlet-like style of leadership suited for conducting the presidency of the United States? More bluntly, is it leadership?


It's almost as if they could foresee the Iranian and Syrian citizens that would be killed, and the U.S. embassies that would burn.
