People Drink Sand Instead of Water Because They Don’t Know The Difference

This is a scene from the 1995 film, “The American President” speaking about leadership. I can’t believe I’ve never seen this film before. President Shepard is a widower dating a woman who’s a lobbyist at a pivotal time during his reelection campaign. It is causing some discomfort amongst his staff . His refusal to address his opponent (who has made it a “family values” issue) is bringing his numbers down. How much of this rings a bell to what’s going on with this Administration?

Here’s the pivotal scene of this movie and yes it’s a movie fantasy. A President speaking plainly, decisively and kicking butt! Dream on dreamers cuz it happening off camera, but it sure is nice to see it play out…

  1. This is actually on of my unhusbands favorite movies. I think that Sheppard is the politician we wish we had because no politician is every that forthright.
