The price of not being able to judge a leader's character...

"I looked the man in the eye. I found him to be very straight forward and trustworthy and we had a very good dialogue.

"I was able to get a sense of his soul."

--George W. Bush, talking about Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, June 16, 2001.

"I got the impression that here was a man who could be relied upon when he had given his word."

--Neville Chamberlain, talking about Adolph Hitler, September, 1938.

When you aren't able to discern someone's true character, all kinds of bad things can happen...
