William Cohen: A President Should Use ‘Language To Educate, To Inspire, and Not To Inflame’

‘I think he should have or she should have access to good information and exercise judgment wisely’

COHEN: "I think he should have or she should have access to good information and exercise judgment wisely. So someone who thinks deeply about serious issues and who speaks clearly and uses language to educate, to inspire, and not to inflame. And I would say that the commander-in-chief, given all the complexities involved, you need to have a group of people who are also wise, seasoned, and will give you advice and not be simply “Yes” men and women, but be willing to challenge you on crucial issues to say that you are wrong and need to change."
