Blair gave a powerful speech. Look at this quote,
And as ever the people are ahead of the politicians. We always think as a political class that people, unconcerned with the daily obsession of politics, may not understand it, may not see its subtleties and its complexities. But, ultimately, people always see politics more clearly than us. Precisely because they are not daily obsessed with it.I always feel insulted by the Democrats pitch that Republicans have bamboozled the people with lies and falsehoods. Tell the Democrats it's politics. We see the politics clearly. Democrats need to become good politicians and offer some alternatives in the debate. The voters will judge who's selling snake oil.
