“People are called to be leaders in unusual ways,” Walker said. “Today, I believe that I am being called to lead by helping to clear the field in this race so that a positive, conservative message can rise to the top of the field.”
Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker said this yesterday in his speech suspending his campaign for the Republican party’s nomination for the presidency.
It is one of the most unusual leadership calls I have ever seen.
Leading by quitting? And inviting others to follow you in quitting, too?
In one way, I am relieved that he has abandoned his presidential bid because I think his policies would have been a disaster for the country, but there are a number of other candidates in the field who are even more destructive and they are not about to “follow his lead” in leaving.
I guess the bright side is that the next debate may be able to fit all the candidates on stage at once, instead of having a small sideshow debate before the main event.
Seriously. I’m trying to find something positive to say about the mess that is the Republican nominating process.
It’s a difficult assignment.
