Blair more popular than Bush at Texas Rodeo

Text settings

I spent this afternoon at the rodeo talking to voters about the race here in Texas. What was most striking, though, was how even those Bush voters from 2004 who are disappointed in their man still have huge affection and respect for Tony Blair; his popularity here really is something to behold. I’ve written up a fuller report on the whole thing on Americano.
