    Leadership isnt given, its earned.

    Anyone heard this phrase during a recurring Ford commercial during the Yankee games?

    What the heck does this even mean? How do you "earn" leadership?

    How does crappy nonsensical copy like that make it to the final cut of a huge corporations TV commercials?

    Is that the Jeter commercial? Ford is saying they have earned the leadership role in the automotive field same as Jeter's earned it on the playing field. Works fine unless you in fact buy a Ford, then you may lead the way to the repair shop.

    You can display leadership. You can earn the role of being a leader.

    You cannot earn leadership....dammit.

    By displaying leadership you earn the role, thus earning the leadership role that Ford is trying to assume...btw an exploding Pinto says hi.

    AHa... but you are adding the term "role" which then makes the use of the word leadership feasible in that context. "Earning leadership" has an entirely different meaning than earning a leadership...role.


    And thats the last word on this subject, by golly.

    People were paid $$$ to come up with and make that commercial.

    They should show the world that they are leaders and kill themselves.
