You say he should be a rock. What would that actually look like? Americans aren't fond of rocks these days. For instance, I think Dick Cheney or Netanyahu are rocks. Look how well they are received.

These days no one gets to win the great leader award. Maybe that's the real result of democracy.
I agree, sort of. I think no one will ever get a great leader award in a democracy not because democracies (and the US in particular) lack for leadership, but because there's always a group of people dedicated to and free to make the leader look bad. The people who look like great democratic leaders today were controversial and highly criticized in their own time.
