A Global View
I loved Bono's op-ed piece in today's New York Times. A refreshing view from one who sees things from the global perspective. We Americans seem these days so limited in our capacity to look beyond our own self-interested concerns and our demands for the immediate satisfaction of our needs. To nail Obama to the cross of our various, conflicting, but too often uncompromising principles, left and right, as we seem intent on doing, still seems to me to be an absurdly short-sighted behavior. I wish him equanimity, and patience.
