Now, more than ever, Americans see Washington as dysfunctional and corrupt. As America's CEO, this is President Obama's responsibility to fix. The president ran on a platform that blamed gridlock on the Bush administration's "arrogant" leadership. He now characterizes gridlock as "Washington politics as usual." When 80% of Americans distrust government, that's Washington at its worst. It didn't just happen. It's a result of many leadership choices. And only the president can lead the effort to make it better.
