Madeleine Albright on America's Role as a Global Leader

Apr 16, 2020, 03:30 AM

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright pulls from her decades of diplomacy experience to chart the changes in America's standing as a leader in the international community. Plus, Al and James praise some Republican governors.

From Secretary of State to Ambassador to the United Nations, Madeleine Albright has been a major player on the world stage in many different capacities, and therefore has spent a decades-long career embracing the bigger picture and seeking solutions to humanity's problems on a global scale. So there are few people better equipped to step back and evaluate the magnitude of America's involvement in geopolitics and the need for its leadership in an ongoing crisis like the coronavirus. She also acknowledges that the next step our government should take is to look within and try to heal the partisan fracturing in order to better deal with the larger issues at play. In that vein, Al and James offer praise to governors on the other side of the aisle who have taken it upon themselves to go against the White House and their party leadership in addressing the pandemic.
