20 minutes or so on why I am 4Barack (Lessig Blog):

Larry Lessig (founder of Creative Commons) has posted an excellent video (20 mins) on the difference between Obama and Clinton and it is a clear and intelligent call for a new era of politics in the USA. It is also an excellent summary of what it takes to be a true inspirational leader, in many ways he is also describing what it takes to be an entrepreneur.

The pace of change in the world has increased now to a point where our world leaders and governments need to be able to lead and inspire change for the better of the planet. Previously many of our leaders got on-board only once there was a clear majority, financial ability, business support and little risk of losing power… which doesn’t sound very much like standing for your principles. It of course remains to be seen what will happen once a candidate like Obama gets into the hot-seat… but I don’t really see Clinton standing for that kind of change…
