WHO TO RUN AGAINST BUSH? One of the big questions of the year, and not just for Americans. At the New Republic's website there are some pieces up argueing the merits of the various candidates. I'll link to those that made any noise over here: Howard Dean and Wesley Clark. In the end I find the editors' choice of Joseph Liebermann probably most convincing and given his foreign policy credentials from what I know he is the candidate most likely to pursue the good bits of Bush's agenda (getting tough of terrorism, etc) without the bad bits (snubbing allies, etc). In short he would make the US's new toughness look nice, which is just what us embattled Atlanticist hawks on the other side of the big pond could do with.
