    This is good news.Britain is a reliable partner in US foreign Policy.i believe all candidates will have something to learn from and something to tell Gordon.
    Obama seize the ooprtunity to discuss serious issues that you will have to handle from January.

    Well, all I can say is the Prime Minister better watch his back with Hillary. Also, he needs to wash his hands after meeting her, you never know.

    I remember hearing on CNN that Brits love Obama. If Brown endorsed him that could be a huge boost.

    Why should Hillary meet with him?
    is that the reson she has decided to stay in the race despite the obvious.
    Okay! have a hanshake with Brown, tell him you wish you had the opportunity to work with him, then gerrout from this race.
    Your perfume has started smelling foul.

    I don't see why Gordon Brown is meeting with Hillary Clinton. She is a liar and really needs to hide under a rock.

    May be HRC can wow him with her Northern ireland exploit. MCCain will out of place , Gordon Brown is a different proposition. He is less likely to panda to America like Blair did. I bet Gordon is looking forward to meeting Obama with a new take on America, it should be an interesting conversation.
    The British are coming , the British are coming.!!!!

    Oh did Hilary just concede the race to Obama yesterday. (that is another topic).

    I guess it is a good way for Hill and Barak to meet him. I think McCain has already met him.

    Why doe sJohn McCain need to speak to Prime Minister Brown. Didn't he go to England smooch the PM's backside a few weeks ago?

    It was amazing to see how the questions were obviously against Obama and how he was able stay above the petiness of the questioners and Hillary. That is why she will be out after the next primary.

    I have been spending most of my time in the USA, thus follow the politics. I hope G Brown can spot a president in the making in B Obama. This can be the best ticket to win the war on terror! not with bomb their way to victory but to talk their way there, unlike myself and my friend G bush. I accept the war was wrong and I hope American people will see that and vote for peace not war.

    Oh my word! We are spreading all that hatefulness to foreign allies as well as within our own country, B.O. and Hills?

    Sounds interesting, what a skimpy article though. No pictures, two sentences. Barely qualifies as a paragraph.. interesting..
