Who is Bill Clinton? Before you answer, you have to think for a second. That is because Bill Clinton does the same thing. Before he does stuff, he thinks about what you want him to do. At least in part, he is who he thinks you want him to be.
We call that being the “ultimate politician”. And one has to admit that Bill is pretty damned good at it. Of course, he is not alone. He just does it better than a lot of other folks do.
Is that the only way to do politics? Of course not. Another way is to have the courage of your convictions. To say out what you think in order to be more proud of who you are. This is why I like the way Elizabeth Warren handles herself in Washington. Check out her comment on Eric Cantor’s new job on Wall Street.
