LEADERS: LEARN FROM OBAMA



TAKE A CUE FROM OBAMA

The US President-elect Mr. Baraka Obama has named senator Ms. Hillary Clinton as his Secretary of State, who was till the other day his rival, a candidate in the race for presidential nomination. Further, he has decided to retain Mr. Robert Gates as Defence Secretary who has served several Republican administrations.
Are such arrangement possible in India? In theory, it is the prerogative of the Prime Minister to select and appoint the members of his Cabinet. But in India, merit rarely prevails. We wish that wisdom of Mr. Obama dawns on our leaders too.
