Sandy: A Leadership Test Days only before the US Presidential Elections

“As of Saturday, Sandy is predicted to be a major hurricane that could hit the east coast of the US and inflict severe damages. For now it is mainly a TV event which one watches evolving live on TV. But has it continues to move North and becomes stronger, preparedness will be key. As many as 65 million Americans, or 1 in 5 Americans could be affected.

A few weeks before one of the most important presidential elections the Nation has faced, Sandy is likely to play a critical role in the November elections, as other disasters have had in recent years. Some made elections; some brought shame on the legacy of the heads of state where they occurred.

I will continue to react as more information comes on the storm.
