    since when is refusal to admit mistakes, or wrong doing, a trait of a good leader?

    im just curious, since bush and his followers have been pointing out what a great "leader" he is.

    at least clinton apologised for what he did and said that he was wrong (and what he did didnt even kill anybody)...

    anyhow, ive just never considered obstinance to be a favorable trait in a leader. ive never felt that an aire of infallability to be a good trait either. nor dogmatic language, or a complete and utter inability to look at things from multiple angles. and lets not forget about "works well with others", or, rather, doesn't. at all.

    all that has left me quite miffed about the whole thing...

    It's called arrogance.

    You're right, it's not a desirable trait.

    Bush's brand of leadership works best for lemmings, not the US Gov't. But it is interesting that in a sports crazed country where halftime adjustments are the hallmark of a great coach that this administration's obstinancy would be heralded as good leadership.
