Again, it is irrelevant if we think he is suitable for the job, the Americans elect a president to run their country and for their interests.
After reading Jeremy Paxmans book, The polictical Animal, which describes the little power UK politicans have in Westminister, and hav'd worked in Civil Servie in Ireland, I question why people are bothered about politicians at all. THe majority of power is held by civil servants, whom at the end of their careers have pictures over 20-30 years with various politicians from various parties, and the only constant face, is them!
Santy, you asked if I marched against the wars here in London. I was for the war, and in fact, I beleive a majority of people were/are (it is not over yet!)
Huh, irrelevant points re Bush not been elected the last point are misplaced. Even Democrats refer to George Jr. as President of the US. He won the election, and all the record books will show this. Close, but winner all the same.
