Republicans choose first black party leader Michael Steele


www.news.com.au

REPUBLICANS in the US have elected their party's first-ever African-American leader, throwing down the gauntlet to rival Democrats after bitter losses in November when Barack Obama won the race to the White House.

A perfect example of the "If you can't beat them, join them" attitude.

We had a similar situation in Aussie politics when John Howard was Prime Minister. Our opposition leader, Kim Beasley, wasn't scoring too well in the polls. In the end, the Labor Party chose Kevin Rudd as leader, who's pretty much a conservative, John Howard clone, in many ways.

It's a pathetic tactic, I think. Copying the opposition to score some votes.
