The End of Blair

This is very sad personally for me. Tony Blair will announce his resignation May 9th. Blair for me was a major influence on my own political thinking.

He is leaving at the absolute nadir and it calls into question this move I have been afraid of--increasing isolationism in foreign policy. He never got a budge from Bush (which he I think was owed) on global warming or Palestinian-Israeli peace process.

Although hopefully Obama's foreign policy speech shows a very Blair-ian sensibility to it.
