Good Morning Friends:

At the beginning of President Obama’s 2012 DNC nomination speech; the president words of praise for Vice President Biden were deserving and heartfelt.  I do not recall a president and vice president in recent history that had a more successful partnership and were friends.

Unique in this relationship is in 2007-8; former Senators Obama and Biden were rivals during the presidential primary along with former Senator Clinton who is now President Obama’s esteemed Secretary of State with an excellent chance if she decides to become the first woman president in America.

To become a great leader; it’s a imperative that one forge relationships built on respect with peers endowed with various strengths; even your rivals. Steven Spielberg’s movie Lincoln which received 12 Oscar nominations this week is a must see on forging a “Team of Rivals” to accomplish great things.

“That’s What Friends Are For” composed by partners Burt Bacharach Carole Bayer-Sager.  The Grammy winning song coveys the beauty of meaningful friendships sung with Dionne Warwick & Friends: Elton John, Stevie Wonder & Gladys Knight in a live performance below.
