When I listen to the news on the television or read it on-line, I notice a common theme, political disputes. It seems our politicians cannot seem to get along. With all the arguing and personal attacks, it is a wonder our political leaders get anything done at all. Then I hear how Americans have lost faith in our politicians in part because of financial distress and this political upheaval. The consequences of this lack of trust in political leaders include the loss of leadership, little to no progress with programs and poor outlooks on future leaders.
