Wow. Watch this video of Tony Blair's recent speech (fast forward 4 minutes in the clip). I can't imagine our own fearless leader even completing a decent sentence, so seeing a country's leader speak well -- with thought behind the speech -- comes as a shock. At least Brits can know that their government's decision to support the war was well thought out, and that the considerations of its people were listened to. Can you imagine Bush making any sort of point or argument in a speech that seems well thought out? I know that he doesn't write his own speeches, but it would still be something indeed. (I would recommend watching the speech, but if you can't for some reason, you can also read the full text.) Thanks to Raymond for the link.
