Make no mistake. I'm not comfortable with her use of phrases like a "shared equity model" for "the American people" (the latter phrase a code word for "government"). It smacks of socialism.
But evenif her ideas are profoundly flawed (which they are), she does at least understand that when a crisis is at hand, leaders have to get out there and lead. It's not enough to vote "present" -- or simply to keep campaigning and hope the crisis will go away because "it's above my pay grade."
