On Mbeki's Resignation...
Wow. How many have seen this? (Link above to the BBC's broadcast of Thabo Mbeki announcement to step down.) I don't know enough about the circumstances surrounding the South African President's decision to resign, but his speech here is a class act.
I have lots of questions. But grounded in this current time in the US political front, I wonder, "Would anything come from a US president resembling this? What would George Bush sound like delivering such a short and humble address? What would ANY US President sound like resigning?" (What do I sound like resigning?)
