I don't know how many more chances I will get to live in a country that is managed by a leader of emulation-worthy intelligence and dignity. But I would at least like another four years of admiring the most powerful person in the world, and that is why I am voting for Barack Obama.
All three of these Obamas -- the inspiring leader, the consensus-seeker and the commanding presence -- are familiar to me; each represents one of six styles that exemplify the leaders who get the best results, whether in business or politics.
Respect for others, tolerance of difference, civility and comity, dialogue and deliberativeness are valued and effective leadership strengths, regardless of what the more bellicose among us may think. This is why Barack Obama is most fit to lead us.
