Great Leaders

I once again today heard the presidents apologists saying that great leaders like FDR and Churchill did things that were not popular because they were the right thing to do. They make the claim that our presidents stubbornness in the face of public opinion makes him great.

I would like to remind these people that it is not necessary and sufficient to stand steadfast in the face of opposition to be great. One must also be right.
