Mitt Romney was pleasantly graceful in his defeat. Barack Obama was simply marvellous in his winning address to his people. Just for a moment contrast their speeches with those of Sonias and Modis in India and you will know the chasm between the two countries and the two people. There is hardly anything but mud slinging when Sonias and Modis speak. The emphasis all the time is on trying to prove who are the worse rogues. Don't be mistaken that the difference is between the quality of leadership in the two countries. The contrast is between the character and the culture of the two people these leaders represent.
