Lead, Mr. President

There will be a lot of politicization of 9/11 over the next few days and in some ways I regret adding to it. But this must be said. It beggars belief that the President could call for a restoration of national unity but not be able to utter the name of his predecessor who led so nobly --as everyone agreed at the time-- on that terrible day and its aftermath.

A little leadership, a little grace. That's all I'm asking.
