Why Can’t America Have a King!?

So, yes, I admit it. I watch Jon Stewart. Particularly when he has guests like King Abdulla II of Jordan.photo courtesy of http://www.topnews.in/people/king-abdullah-ii

You should watch this clip (you can skip the humor stuff at the beginning, if you’re like me) — King Abdullah is about as smart and reasonable-sounding as you would want a leader of a country to be.

Watch King Abdullah making Jon Stewart straighten up and fly right.

He spoke plainly, well, passionately, and firmly. No strategic pauses or inflections (a la Obama); no strained hyperbole (like nearly every Republican or Fox Schmooze correspondent).

Just a real man sounding like a real leader. I dig this guy.
