Louisiana's Native Son, General Honore

USA Ret. General Russell Honore is a born leader.  Who can forget how this cigar chomping, low small talk/high credibility personality rolled into New Orleans with the National Guard after Katrina and imposed order on that incredibly tempestuous mess.  His authority and charisma were memorable.

Lately, the Louisiana native has been outspoken about the Gulf oil spill.  “World War III,” he declares.  And I like that approach.

We could use this man’s charisma.  He’s been appearing on TV interviews for the past weeks, his most recent get-aggressive, get-tough-on-BP remedies for the crisis airing on CNN.

I hope the President is watching–We could use some charismatic leadership along about now.
