Today Show Hosts Struggle to Think of Examples of American Exceptionalism

This morning I was watching the Today Show and caught a segment on why Europeans are better at life than Americans.  Examples they gave were cheese and vacation time.  Then they struggled to think of something Americans could do better than Europeans.  The discussion was accompanied by a chryon that read "American Exceptionalism."  Someone, I think Matt Lauer, suggested binge TV watching.  Another sarcastically said fast food.  Al Roker said we actually have some pretty good cheese.  Savannah Guthrie then sarcastically said, "Like Velveeta?"  Al tried to insist that Americans did have good cheese, but it fell on deaf ears.

An Article Every Student, Intern and Entry-Level Employee Needs to Read

Is there any way to offer advice to millenials without sounding like an old fart?  Probably not, but they still need to hear it.  I've been working in politics in the D.C. area for almost 15 years, so I've seen a lot of interns and entry-level employees come and go.  Some of them had a great work ethic and understanding of the working world.  Many did not.  Sep 23, 2013 6:21 PM PT
