People Want Leadership

From My Screen Jan 29, 2013

From the movie, “The American President

LEWIS: “People want leadership, Mr. President, and in the absence of genuine leadership, they’ll listen to anyone who steps up to the microphone. They want leadership. They’re so thirsty for it they’ll crawl through the desert toward a mirage, and when they discover there’s no water, they’ll drink the sand.

PRESIDENT SHEPHERD: Lewis, we have had presidents who were beloved, who couldn’t find a coherent sentence with two hands a flashlight. People don’t drink the sand because they’re thirsty; they drink the sand because they don’t know the difference.
