Management vs. Leadership

LadderHearing Hillary Clinton talk about her experience vs. Barack Obama's experience reminds me of this classic quote from Stephen Covey.
"Management is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall."
-- Stephen Covey
Seems like Senator Clinton would be a good manager, but Senator Obama will make the better strategic choices.

Exhibit 1. Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution of 2002

That ladder was leaning on the wrong wall.
