A little bit of politics
This is after all an historic moment so you'll forgive me for posting this. I know a few here think that Obama will turn out to be a spin merchant along the lines of Tony Blair (who in any case did one or two good things) but this article cautions against such cynicism. The peerless Alistair Cooke said about GWB that we should wait and see, despite unpromising signs. We certainly should with Obama, who I suspect will turn out to be a pretty good leader. We can but hope because we are short of pretty good leaders.
