The difference between stubbornness and tenacity is direction. If a leader is going in a foolish or destructive direction, he or she is being stubborn. If a leader is going in a positive and constructive direction, then he or she is being tenacious.

I believe John McCain is more motivated by humble and tenacious thinking and motives. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, in my opinion, are more motivated by stubbornness and ego.

I feel much better about McCain's leadership of America for the next four years than the alternatives.
