Who was 'the best leader' of 2008? CNN's 'Spirit of Leadership' Poll

by Phil Dourado December 8, 2008

CNN are running a poll to see who was the best leader in 2008 from their shortlist. Their phrase is 'Who sums up the spirit of leadership?' which is a nice way to put it.

Their candidates range from Kofi Annan, to James Lovelock (the Gaia visionary) to Gustavo Dudamel, the young prodigy conductor, a graduate of Venezuela's El Sistema, which takes thousands of young people away from street poverty and gangs and gives them a future via orchestral music.

Nice idea. Worth a vote.
