Obama Calls For “New Blood” In Political Leadership

The Hawaii Civil Beat reports:

Barack Obama is a little older and a little grayer. But at a speech at the East-West Center’s Hawaii Imin Conference Center Sunday evening, he sounded very much like the hope-and-change leader that vaulted him to the White House in 2008.

Most of the problems in the world, he said, do not face technological or educational barriers. What is needed is human organization and leadership. “We have a deficit of leadership, and we need new blood,” he said. True leadership features dialogue, listening, inclusion and a “commitment to human dignity.”

The 44th president of the United States made no public mention of the 45th president, Donald Trump, or of the continuing government shutdown.
