I don’t agree with all-male leaderships. Men cannot be left to run things on their own. I think it’s a thoroughly bad thing to have a men-only leadership.
America somehow thinks that leadership relates to governance, and it certainly does. But society is much bigger than governance, and some of the truly great leadership of our society is outside the governance arena.
The test of leadership for David Cameron was actually to bring the British Conservative Party back in to the mainstream.
We shouldn’t be debating whether to deal with the current code by allowing it to be extended or not. We should have a president who shows leadership and comes to Congress and says: ‘You know what? We need to reform this whole tax code.’
I think that if Republicans are given the reins of leadership in the House or Senate or both, we will have to govern in a way – at least put forward solutions whether or not the president goes along with them or not, that deal with these long-term challenges.
