True Leadership in a Time of Global Warming
In the wake of extreme drought in much of the United States, widespread wildfires in the U.S. west, and now Hurricane Sandy, Barack Obama's and Mitt Romney's refusal to discuss human-induced climate change will undoubtedly go down as political recklessness of historic proportions.

Darn good question.
I learned it as someone who can unite disparate and feuding factions behind him to move forward.
But another definition is 'someone who runs to the front of the mob and yells 'follow me'.
And there is some truth to that. Leaders generally come out of a trend in the public that they 'symbolize', like Martin Luther King Jr.
As such they don't unite a movement so much as represent a united movement.
But I would say that leadership is needed to propose and consolidate opinion behind real action (such as a 'Revenue Neutral Carbon Tax') that will address an important issue such as nuclear weapons limitations, world peace, and global warming.
That 'leadership role' doesn't necessarily represent ONE man.
