Leadership Lessons from POTUS 1: What Washington Wanted to Say on Becoming President My present object is to point out the means of encreasing perpetuating the happiness of the people ... The preliminary observation that a free government ought to be built on the information and virtue of the people will here find its proper place ... On April 30, 1789,on the balcony of Federal Hall in New York City, George Washington took the Presidential oath of office, solemnly swearing to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. Bucking thousands of years of tyrannical traditions, the Founders and Washington staked out an exceptional path for America. Despite the reality of slavery, the lack of political standing of women, and myriad other deep and often tragic injustices, they created for us the vision of an economically thriving and diverse nation capable of collectively overcoming challenges that the states could meet on their own. Preparing for the awesome task, Washington drafted his inaugural address in January, 1789. Aware of his own fallibility, he then sent it to James Madison, encouraging unfettered advice with a coy note implying that David Humphreys was the author. Washington didn t exactly lie, but in fact, the whole 73-pages manuscript was not only written in his own words, but also penned by his own hand. Madison feared that such a detailed manifesto would re-open wounds from recent ratification battles and hinder the new government s progress. He sent back an entirely re-written and much shorter version that steered clear of avoidable controversies. Washington, being in the habit of following good advice, put aside his own draft and delivered Madison s substitute speech. What Washington really wanted to say was not in the appropriate but unremarkable Delivered Address, but in his own Undelivered Address, which was in effect his manifesto on designing, defining and defending our government. Given the current crisis, I think the example of George Washington and the Founders might have some lessons for us as we first respond to an unprecedented crisis, and then come to terms with how to pay for it, as Washington and Hamilton did with the debt incurred to fight the Revolutionary War.
