I saw Blair speak a couple years ago at a conference, and it was one of the most enjoyable events I have ever attended. While we certainly don’t agree on all issues, he is an incredible speaker and a man of his convictions. He has a great pulse on international events and shares our viewpoint. he promoted Nuclear energy as the future, talked about the cultural problems in the middle east (most notably very real challenges in the education/indoctrination of young people in their schools, and the role of the Chinese. Rarely does one here so much real insight from an individual.

While it was apparent from his speech that he built a strong friendship with Clinton and probably was more eye to eye on domestic issues as a social liberal, he clearly had a respect for President Bush’s leadership post 9/11 that transcended political philosophy.

I'd've agreed with you on that until Blair involved himself in the Lockerbie bomber deal.
