The goings-on at the G20 summit were not quite so happening:
While the group put on a strong united front during its summit meeting here Saturday in the face of a global crisis, members delayed any top-level decisions, including far-reaching but hotly debated proposals on overhauling financial regulation, until the 101st day of the incoming Obama administration.
That’s your global leadership hard at work, kicking the can down the road.
More seriously, I’m not sure what was supposed to be accomplished by the G20, or even why the G20 exists. Well, apart from the food.
