Our December 9 speaker David Rothkopf, a witness to leadership as a member of the Clinton administration, will discuss his new book, National Insecurity: American Leadership in an Age of Fear. But that's just one of many topics he's addressed lately. One of his more amusing pieces is the November 12 CNN essay titled "Leaders' funniest home videos." His sense of humor and irony and his perspective of media approach to leadership are evident in this essay. And, in the end, it isn't the media he blames.
