[The Chosun Ilbo, November 1 2007] The Next Test of Power Is Never Far Away

President Roh Moo-hyun a while ago repeated an old complaint: "I have no power,” he said. “Please rally power on my behalf." Koreans have heard it all before. Ordinary citizens who know nothing except taxes and who are thus genuinely powerless may well wonder how much more power he needs at this late juncture before he is satisfied.


A saying has it that the next mirror to look at your face is never far away. This article was written not with the incumbent president uppermost in mind, but with the candidates who dream of presidential power, and the public who expects too much of the president.
