My friend Fraser Nelson waits until the last-minute before hopping aboard the Obama express and does so largely because he thinks Obama is likely to do some good in terms of how America is perceived around the world and, let's be honest, because Obama's election might make the sanctimonious left rethink, at least for a moment, some of their prejudices about the United States. Still, I also enjoyed his payoff:
Finally, my Republican friends have been gushing about Tony Blair for years now – they didn’t have to live with his policies. I won’t have to live with Obama’s. So it’s time for some light revenge.
