I like Fareed Zakaria, Newsweek's international editor. I always think he makes such sense. If political leaders read his writings more often, and tried to apply them, I think the world would be a better place.
Read this article from him on how to resolve the debt problem. And yet, you know that Congress would vote against these measures, no matter how much sense they make. It's the same everywhere - elected representatives are incapable of doing what's right - they only care about getting re-elected, not the future for their children and grand-children. I can only imagine how frustrating this is for people like Obama, who are trying to do what's right for their country and are being blocked at every step of the way.
