It's always easier to recuse oneself rather than to take a stand. But isn't withdrawal a failure of true leadership? Doesn't strong leadership require strong self-definition? Isn't using the chicken button, except in rare circumstances, just another way path of weakness, failed leadership, or worse, no leadership at all? I fear we're about to elect a charming, smooth chimera of leadership rather than the real thing.
