Incredible post, this really has got me thinking. I really believe it shows more of strength of character for a politician to admit when he's been wrong rather than try to hold on and convince people that his wrong move was the right one.

Bob, what a wonderful post. I think it speaks volumes about our political culture today that leading candidates and politicians consistently refuse to admit making mistakes on the grounds that doing so would show weakness.

On the contrary, recognizing reality shows strength, and is far more likely to generate positive outcomes for the electorate.

awesome post this morning, bob -- incredibly apropos of some things i've been thinking about lately, and a great way to frame up the week for me. thanks!
