More Tory Coverage

The views of the delegates I’ve talked to so far on America mostly seem to fikkiw a simple pattern: strong support for America in general, including reflex gratitude from the older delegates for America’s role in WWII and the Cold War, followed by deep skepticism over the current military position.  There is general disdain for the President, mostly, it seems, based on his perceived inarticulacy and his closeness to Blair.  Not much enthusiasm for McCain, but most delegates don’t seem to have heard of him before yesterday!  In general, the mood seems to be that things will improve for the alliance once the current President and Prime Minister leave office.
