A Victory Day

History is funny about how it delivers leaders. Some nations, when they need it most, are given the worst leaders who on paper at least, should have been the right leader at the right time.

Other nations are provided leaders who, on paper, seem to be a disaster in the making ... but don't just rise to the occasion, come to dominate the occasion.

A comic. They elected a comic.

Ukraine's President Zelensky's May 9th address to his nation - and to everyone else - is a masterpiece of the right man at the right time with the right words.

Take time to listen to it. This is what a sharp, vibrant, focused, and grounded leader looks like.

At least at this moment, at this time, I don't see how a nation in a place such as Ukraine's could get a better leader.
