1. I expect a certain quantity of rejoicing when Mr Obama wins the next election. That is excusable. I do understand the situation.

2. Please, kindly, do not either express surprise or irrational defensiveness when, say, healthcare remains rubbish and foreign policy is appalling.

Think of it this way: it won't get any worse. Probably.

But but but, he SAID we would be voting for change!

You mean a politician might not come through on all his promises?

In all seriousness though, I find the entire process aggravating to the point that I would rather go live in a shed in the Adirondack mountains then deal with it every four years. Unfortunately I have always enjoyed showers and electricity.

It's interesting that New Labour has just upped its carbon targets. My guess: they know they won't be in power, that it will be the Conservatives who have to deal with it, they hope it will bring the Conservatives down and they will get back into power.

It's now a slash and burn policy so that what the conservatives inherit they won't be able to deal with.
