I'd rather vote to replace the entire party, rather than Gordon Brown just stepping in. The public are disillusioned by the entire party, not just Blair.

I saw this on CNN as well. . . . may be as early as the fall of this year.

I certainly have no Dig in the Hunt in UK politics, but I'm satisfied that Mr. Blair has been a good friend to the US. As have all the PMs really - the US and UK are one people separated by a common language: George S. Patton, Jr.
