Tony Blair steps down

But who will follow Bush blindly into war?

After serving a decade in office as the Prime Minister of Britain, Tony Blair has announced that he is stepping down.

Well, I've can say honestly I've never spent 10 years in one job. Can't blame him for wanting to get held back in a deadend job.

Blair was one of the most successful Labour prime ministers of the United Kingdom.

Good for him.

It is Iraq and Blair's alliance with US President George W Bush that will dominate his legacy in the twilight of his rule.

Really? You think in a few decades that's what people will be talking about. When we talk about Richard Nixon we don't think Vietnam right off the bat. No, no, we think of the absolute and total corruption of our government. Ah, fond memories.

''Britain and America are old allies and the prime minister and I are strong friends,'' Bush said in December last year.

Technically though, we're even older enemies.

But: Richard Nixon could've maybe been the greatest President ever. At least, in terms of babe-offspring. Daughter Tricia was maybe a 6 1/2 in her heyday but her sister, Julie, was actually really good-looking--maybe about an 8--in an unindicted co-conspirator kind of way. And she had great legs, too.
