As I watch the country continue to flail its economic and social arms, accompanied by the current round of Obama promise-one-on-one with Mitt, I no longer wonder if the leader we have been waiting for will ever show up. Obama and Romney, or McCain before him, are more like the tragic characters of the book, Vladimir and Estragon.
Mr. Obama was the closest thing to a godsend the country has had in decades - but alas, he morphed into just a good politician, who at best reflects the clueless desperation of the masses interwoven with his focused ambition. Of course, our problems are much bigger than the president or his even more ambitious adversary. We need someone to take us beyond our current state of national meaninglessness.
We need Godot.
James C. Collier
