Another Doomed Incumbent?
The Iraq war and longevity also seems to have mortally wounded the Labour government in Britain. The Conservatives - the green, gay-inclusive variety - now have a ten point lead in the polls:
Labour has the backing of only 29% of voters, equal to its lowest-ever level of support in a Guardian/ICM poll - recorded in May 1987, a month before Margaret Thatcher won a third term.
David Cameron - younger than me - could be the next prime minister. Obama doesn't seem so unlikely in that context, does he? Except you know what that makes America? An Obamanation.
