Leadership means whatever way the wind is blowing

For our great leader, it depends on what day it is and what other world leaders are doing: "Harper to attend Copenhagen climate summit."
Prime Minister Stephen Harper will attend the Copenhagen climate change meeting next month after all, his office said Thursday — a day after saying he would not go.

Harper decided Thursday to attend the meeting to work on a new climate change agreement after the U.S. president and Chinese premier announced that they will show up, his spokesman said.
This is, of course, a very principled exercise of leadership. He's said all along that he'd go if others did. See?
