8. Walk around. If you are invisible, the mystique of the President’s office may perpetuate inaccurate impressions about you or the President, to his detriment. After all, you may not be as bad as they’re saying.
*** Markbnj says *** I really think Donald Rumsfeld is EXTREMELY guilty here. He IS totally invisible 95% of the time.

9. In our system leadership is by consent, not command. To lead a President must persuade. Personal contacts and experiences help shape his thinking. They can be critical to his persuasiveness and thus to his leadership.

*** Markbnj says *** Please comment!

$$$ Rumsfeld Says $$$
10. Be precise. A lack of precision is dangerous when the margin of error is small.

*** Markbnj says *** Please comment! My personal opinion is that the margin of error has been so small, and his misTEAKS so LARGE, that the precision of our Armies has been shot to smithereens!

$$$ Rumsfeld Says $$$
11. Preserve the President’s options. He may need them.

*** Markbnj says *** Hoo-Haa-Haa. ANOTHER MAJOR Guffaw here.. Please Comment!
