Leadership Styles of GOP Candidates
Whatever you think of the candidates' personalities, they have led a lot of people and solicited a lot of money to get where they are. Here is what their leadership styles are like.
What's the Latest Development?
The success of a president depends in large part on how he leads the team of people immediately around him and those in his wider circle. How are the prospective GOP candidates likely to handle the executive reigns? Mitt Romney is a pragmatic sort, unlikely to capture your imagination with bold experiments, but likely to do something when data points him in a concrete direction. "He offers a realistic and rational approach that has led to charges of flip-floppery, but that also exhibits a flexibility and adaptability that’s critical for any leader."
What's the Big Idea?
If leadership is defined as having the ability to inspire followers, Ron Paul seems the best leader of the field. His followers have been compared to the postal service: 'they’re going to come out—hail, sleet, snow, wind, straw polls, Internet chat rooms—they’re there for him.' Jon Huntsman has exhibited the dignity to stay above the often bizarre fray of the primaries. His 'country first' mantra stands in real contrast to the partisanship that has characterized the latest years of American politics. Follow the link for Santorum, Gingrich and Perry.
