Where have all the leaders gone?

Along with many other people, I’ve been complaining for a while now that Australia’s leaders seem to be doing a lot of following the polls but lacking in the ability to lead. At the NYT Thomas Friedman says it’s a global issue and explains what he thinks is going on. He calls it ‘popularism’. It’s time for real leadership that speaks the truth and convinces the electorate what needs to be done for the common long term good. Then we could play follow the leader instead of leaders following Twitter, Facebook and this morning’s polls.
