Bedfellows Blair and Bush

They say that politics makes strange bedfellows. One contemporary manifestation of this proverb is the relationship between Britain's Tony Blair and America's George W. Bush. Tony Blair, of the British Labour party, has been compared to Bill Clinton, with respect to his political philosophies. On the other hand, George Bush represents a stark form of American conservatism. It is interesting how both men are being villified by their opposing parties regarding the war in Iraq. I think that this demonstrates how the war is extremely political. The question of right/wrong quickly gets lost in the partisan bickering. I don't mean for this post to be a major breakthrough in how to deal with moral issues of war. It is just a simple observation.
