Comparing Noynoy Aquino and Margaret Thatcher, of course, can be thought of as similar to comparing chalk and cheese. In Japanese they term it “undei no sa”, which literally refers to the world of difference between clouds (un) and mud (dei).
Conviction and stubbornness can be often thought of as two sides of
the same coin. What, then, is the fine line that separates them?
We don’t have to think very hard about who’s gotten them, and who hasn't.
