Do you consider Hitler a leader?

I posted earlier about my view of leadership. In it I made mention of Hitler that given the new definition of leadership, he cannot be said to be a leader. So what do you think? Was he a leader? Why or why not?

| 3 pre-Haloscan comments:

yes, Hitler was a leader, just a bad leader, a very bad leader, and led people astray to a very harmful and malicious end.

After reading about Hitler for about 40 years now, I would conclude that he was a briliant leader. In fact, at first, he was a very good leader, bringing societal order, morality, a pride in country and economic increase and opportunity. But unfortunately, Hitler had dabbled too much in the occult and the world of fantasy in his youth. Hence, he began to spiral down the wrong road bringing his country to destruction....a real German twilight of the gods ending. The funny thing is-- ultimately Germany achieved much of what Hitler wanted--a real respect in the world--an economic and political leader.

Hmmmm.... so it looks like the consensus is that leadership can encompass bad or evil character or traits... more about this later.
