The failure of political leadership certainly goes beyond Jimmy Carter and the rest of our politicians. A great part of the failure of our political process is that it does not require leadership. The expectation that our "leaders" are more than representatives of our individual self-interests is our failure. We do not require vision. We ollectively only require that they vote to allocate resources to the things that we care about. And that alone is not leadership.
I don't think that you understand the concept of leadership very well. The fact that what our elected representatives do, and what they say, influences what everyone hears is obvious to most. The idea that all our so called representatives need to do is to blindly follow the wishes of the multitude is the first step to mob rule. Maybe we need to study the history of the French Revolution.
