I TOLD YOU SO

I'm not in the habit if saying this so I will allow myself this one exception.
  1. Here is a list that I wrote right after the election. The points I want to repeat, and that we are now seeing, are that 1. you still have a democracy rather than a dictatorship, and 2. Not all election promises get fulfilled, especially if the electee lacks political deal making skills.
    Both these points reinforce that in a democracy, the leadership role is about persuading and influencing.
  2. I would just paste parts of the original list here, but copy/paste doesn't seem to work on published lists.
