Column: Paging Uncle Sam

25 February 2009 No Comment

Paging Uncle Sam – NYTimes.com: Thomas L. Friedman

I liked Friedman’s column this morning because it made me feel good to be an American.  Read the whole thing for a warm and fuzzy feeling, but this excerpt will give you an idea of the gist of it:

For all the talk in recent years about America’s inevitable decline, all eyes are not now on Tokyo, Beijing, Brussels or Moscow… All eyes are on Washington to pull the world out of its economic tailspin. At no time in the last 50 years have we ever felt weaker, and at no time in the last 50 years has the world ever seen us as more important….

There is no one who can replace America. Without American leadership, there is no leadership,’ said Lee Hong-koo, South Korea’s former ambassador to Washington.
