Apr 08 Kent Horsley spoke on George Washington

The goal of our discussion on George Washington was to create a fresh portrait that made him real, credible and charismatic in the same way that he was perceived by his contemporaries.  By gleaning anecdotes and quotes from others, we attempted to make him vivid and immediate, rather than the lifeless waxwork he has become for many Americans, and thereby elucidate the secrets of his uncanny ability to lead a nation.  His unerring judgment, sterling character, rectitude, steadfast patriotism, unflagging sense of duty and civic-mindedness were exemplary virtues he achieved only by his ability to subdue the underlying volatility of his nature and direct his entire psychological makeup to the single-minded achievement of a noble cause.
