Gordon Brown told the BBC this morning that he’ll be holidaying in Britain this year. Dick Morris will be proud! With all his Middle Britain pleasing micro-initiatives--flying the flag over Number 10 and the like--the strategy of the early weeks of the Brown premiership bear an uncanny resemblance to Clinton’s between his drubbing in the mid-terms in 1994 and his re-election in 1996. All we need now is for Brown to endorse school uniforms and the v-chip.
