International: June 2008 Archives

This selection just from the last week. 

"We will continue to work closely with the Saudi government to bring oil prices down to sustainable levels" - Gordon Brown, Britain, so they say 

"I wanted to kill somebody.. you know very well who, like every other Pole" - Donald Tusk, Poland 

"We represent 80% of the electorate and a wide range of public opinion within society. Any reasonable assessment by Irish people has to lead them to vote yes." - Brian Cowen, Ireland 

"We've all had to drive the porcelain bus at some stage" - Kevin Rudd, Australia

The dream candidate?

So it's finally over. Except that it isn't until Saturday. Or maybe it'll just be suspended until later. I mean, her routes to the top job are now pretty limited. Except, perhaps, in 2012.

If Hillary'd played a bit nicer, especially over things like comparing the Florida/Michigan fixes (which were generous to her side) to the Florida fiddle of 2000, maybe she would have been right for the VP slot. I doubt it.

But just for fun, to the left is what that ticket would look like (via). Scary stuff. I prefer a shot of undiluted Obama. Oh, and may the next serious female candidate for US president be someone more admirable than her.
