Slade Gorton
Political leader

Slade Gorton

A former U.S. Senator and Washington State Attorney General, Slade Gorton served on the 9/11 Commission.

Stop the Demogoguery

Only the president commands an audience broad enough to override the utter demagoguery of so many of both parties in Congress. He needs to focus the attention of the people and the Congress on the real challenge: the lack of private capital, lending, and willingness to invest. Unfortunately, to this point, the president has been almost as irresponsible as the loudest voices in the Congress. It is not, however, too late for him to show the leadership for which he was elected and become part of the solution rather than of the problem.
