Looking around the world right now, I think there are many examples of poor leadership around. In many countries, leaders have been elected who are solely concerned with pleasing those who voted for them. They see the world as being in two camps, us and them, right and wrong. Leaders who have this two fold vision of the world seem to be only concerned with the "us" side and reject those who are on the "them" side. Those who promote this "us" and "them" ideology come from either side of the political spectrum. Take the Republicans and Democrats in the US. They are so divided between and us and them, they can't see any possible good coming from someone on the other side of the political fence.
