Framing the Dialogue


imageWith the recent death of South Africa’s Nelson Mandela it is a convenient time to compare two very different “leaders.”  The stories circulating about President Mandela tell a tale of a great man and leader. The one that touched me most was hearing that he invited his white jailers to his inauguration.  Instead of bitterness he chose the path toward healing.

Obama doesn’t contrast well.  Actually he pales.  As the graphic on the left attests “I” is clearly Obama’s favorite word. On the news of President Mandela’s passing the Obama White House released this photograph of Der Leader sitting thoughtfully in Mandela’s jail cell…


…just as his touching tribute to Rosa Parks upon her death as he sits pensively in her bus seat…


 …and his recent tribute to Pearl Harbor!
