Leadership makes all the difference

Secretary of State Colin Powell is gearing up to leave Foggy Bottom. Too bad, I say.
Department employees will look on Powell's tenure with fondness, said John Limbert, president of the American Foreign Service Association, the union of career diplomats.

"The reason is simple: On his first day in the department he promised to lead, and he did," Limbert said recently. "He restored pride to a demoralized cadre that had been coping with neglect, disrespect and severe personnel and budget cuts."
Now there's an example of leadership.
