First, my thanks to David Adesnik for his nice plug.

As for his comments that I'm a bit harsh on Blair, I was trying to make the point (realizing and accepting that my writing is not as polished as others with more experience in this weblog business) that Blair, having chosen to run for Parliament as a member of the Labor Party, is stuck with them when they revert to form - in this case, acting in ways that are anti-American, and specifically anti-Bush. Yes, Blair is to be given credit for his reshaping of the Labor Party - much as Clinton received credit for his work with the Democrats. But, the Labor Party isn't the biggest fan of America(ns), and never will be, and Blair runs a big risk anytime he strays too far from the reservation.
