THE SOUND OF ONE HAND CLAPPING













I am sitting here watching British Prime Minister Tony Blair on C-SPAN 2 explaining his decision to withdraw 1,600 troops from the Basra region of Iraq in the House of Commons. The event where he had been pummeled with questions from the like of Conservative leader David Cameron and Liberal Democratic leader Menzies Campbell is still on going and forces me to pause with this question. How would George Bush fare if he had to answer in the well of the House of Representatives the direct questions on his policies from the likes of Barney Frank, or Charlie Rangel or John Conyers? A president then would have to be more than just a straw man for political interests with deep pockets and draconian agendas. American presidents would have to be more dare I say it like Tony Blair.
