It's 1968 in the UK

Except Tony Blair isn’t bowing out the way LBJ did over his unpopular war. The Tories are within the margin of error, and the UK’s own Nixon like Michael Howard may actually win this election.

Just as the left protested the Democratic convention in 1968, the UK’s Liberal party is trying to advance itself, and it certainly seems like it will, but in the end, it would mean Howard, not Kennedy as the new PM.

Putting aside my interst in UK politics, the Bushies would certainly call a Tory victory a victory for them, even though it was a rebuke of Tony Blair and Bush’s war.
