Obama: Second Term or Second Coming?

Prepare to be disturbed.

This type of hero-worship or cult of personality surrounding one of our leaders is not healthy for our country. One of the cornerstones of our system of government is that each of these leaders is one of us, one of the people - no better or worse, just a man or woman given the responsibilities of leadership. They are not superhuman or messianic figures. Attributing such a status to one of them is harmful.

Americans are to be led, not ruled.
