Be As Good As This

You may know I worked for President Reagan but this week I give my commendations to President Obama, regardless of how I feel about his policies.

The president does a superb job of talking to each one of us individually in his latest POV video on broadband speeds. (He also gives a great shout-out to Chattanooga, where Emily and Jane will be headed next week!)

As a message to all presidential candidates:  if you're not as good as this, you're not going anywhere. Business leaders should also take note because this is what people are seeing--and what they expect from you.
