I have never been one of those who regards Bill Clinton as an icon of the progresive movement. The man who executed a brain damaged person so as too look tough on law and order, the man who abused his position of power with an intern, is hardly a model for progressives to look up to.
But this timehe has trult lost it. Looking to the future, he has suggested that Tony Blair might have a future as Secretary General of the United Nations. Yes, the same Tony Blair who gave a V sign to the UN when it failed to endorse his tawdry war, and sent the missiles of death into Iraq.
It is not just Iraq that shows Blair's unsuitability to this role. As I shall be posting in the next few days, this is the Prime Minister who has shown less respect for an independent judiciary than any of his predecessors.
Making Blair the next Secretary General of the United Nations is about as sensible as putting Dick Turpin in charge of the Post Office. A crazy world has just got a little bit crazier.
