"In an environment where others are only bunting, two individuals, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp, R-Mich., and Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel are swinging for the fences with big plans that have the potential to shape policy for years to come. Camp is floating an overhaul of the nation's tax code. Hagel is attempting to shape the military into a smaller, high-tech fighting force more adapted to current threats.
Legislators were meant to not just win elections, but to legislate. Cabinet Secretaries were not meant to be caretakers, but to tackle big issues. While each initiative includes some elements I support and others I oppose, I applaud their quest to climb the highest peak they face, the first step of what I call Peak Leadership."
