Americans have an almost fetishistic attitude toward leadership. Like a magic wand, “leadership” is to be waved over the problems that affect the body politic as well as the seemingly intractable flaws of U.S. foreign policy. We search the horizon for a magical leader in the same way that the hapless clowns of Beckett's play wait for Godot. In the ideal sense that stubbornly persists in the popular imagination—rather than the reality of adulterous liaisons, anti-Semitic wisecracks, and fabricated anecdotes—the men of the Oval Office remain deus ex machina, salvational horsemen, and comicbook superheroes all rolled into one.
