A Japanese Role Model for President Obama?

I'm as xenophobic as the next guy, but sometimes we can learn somethings from examples provided by leaders of foreign countries. Consider what our president might learn from the Japanese Prime Minister who resigned today:
Embattled Japanese Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama said Wednesday he was resigning over his broken campaign promise to move a U.S. Marine base off the southern island of Okinawa.

His government came to power amid high hopes in September after his party soundly defeated the long-ruling conservatives in lower house elections.

But his public image has tumbled amid a political funding scandal and perceived inconsistency and indecision
Any of that sound familiar?
