Barack Obama and Bill Ayers Relationship
In â€œObama, Ayers, and Guilt By Associationâ€, an Op-Ed published in The Atlantic, Matthew Yglesias argues that â€œguilt-by-associationâ€ has negatively impacted Barack Obamaâ€™s political campaign.

Yglesias insists that Barack Obamaâ€™s political opponents shouldnâ€™t focus on the connection with Bill Ayers. According to Yglesias, if Obama is held accountable with his association with Bill Ayers, the leader of the Weather Underground, why

Traits of a Lion
Loyal. Intelligent. Traits that are common between two men. These men have been used as examples of these great words for a long time. These men are undoubtedly Marcus Antonious (AKA Mark Antony) and Barrack Obama. One tries to persuade the plebeians that the conspirators were wrong and should be persecuted while lying to the same conspirators to save his life. The other tells the truth only the truth trying to convince the people that he is the right person for the presidency. They both have been loyal to the people, they both have always stood up for what they believe in not for the sake of what makes them popular but what will create a better society that we live in

Although there are many individuals I would consider as the embodiment of good leadership, I would attempt to focus my attention on President Barack Obama (PBO) as the embodiment of good leadership. Mills D. Q (2005), explains leadership as a process by which one person influences the behavior, thoughts and attitudes of others (p.11). This means that leadership sets direction for the rest to follow and also energizes people towards a goal. I would limit this paper to his past leadership roles, the criteria used in determining his leadership capabilities and provide illustrations of how he demonstrated these leadership capabilities in his roles.

He makes the citizens feel like he knew the people who were killed by the shooting. He talks about all of them in a sense that he knew them personally. The back stories about each individual contribute to the emotional appeal Obama creates.

They did everything together, traveling the open road in their R.V., enjoying what their friends called a 50-year honeymoon” (Obama). This quote
