I agree! I really do.
But, with accountability dwindling at home as you stated... I think respect across the world is dwindling fast also.
Economies the whole world over are in the pan right now and its not going to get better soon. GWB certainly has not helped matters in the worlds eye of the USA. If one of the other countries that are begining to make a mark on the worlds economies, through no fault of anyone, outshines the US, then what?
Would the US accept a new role model??
A figure head or whatever they are is setting themselves up for a heavy fall if they think they can be the role model to the world.
Just my opinion... and now im late putting my meatloaf in the oven!

I most certainly don't need my president to be a role model for me. I'm sure lots of young folks think this is an important attribute in their president, but not us grown ups. I need someone competent as my commander in chief, not someone who is charismatic or thought of as 'president of the world.'
