    Well, I suppose Bush's endorsement is enough of a reason for some folks to vote for Obama, but looking at the tense (even if agreeable) relationship they have had since 2000, I expect Bush did it out of party loyalty.

    But Brown's endorsement of Obama is unfortunately not so related. Poor Barack - endorsed by a moron. Even the hypocrisy of a western political party scolding a foreign government for backing horse in another country's election won't be enough to wash the stench of Brown off.

    OP - your title should say, "A potential reason to vote for McCain". The people supporting McCain are either bigots, or the people who do not care much for having a real reason. If there is an (R) by the name, that is good enough.

    So, am I a bigot or do I not care much for having a real reason? Really, I'm curious to know. Also, please tell me what is acceptable under the banner "real reason." I'd hate to go to the polls and vote my concience without your approval.

    There are plenty of folks that are going to check off names that have a (D) at the end simply because that's what they do. Doesn't make it right when Republicans do it, just hypcritical when Democrats do.

    There's quite the ongoing relationship between the political parties of the USA and UK. They plagiarise from each others' speeches, adopt each others' strategies and regularly swap advisers when campaign time comes along.

    Just as Thatcher backed Reagan, Major backed Bush Sr. and Blair backed Gore, Brown is backing Obama. Notice a pattern? The Tories buddy with the Republicans, Labour go with the Democrats.

    Your Presidents make their favourites known here too, it's just your media doesn't report on our elections until the result comes in so you're unlikely to hear about it. Really, this isn't news. It's been happening for decades.

    But, Queso, you're missing the implication. Sen. Obama has been backed by a European (*spit*) who's also a socialist (*spit*) and liberal (*spit*) by association of his birthplace. It's a liberal (*spit*) socialist (*spit*) conspiracy to give the Homeland over to the evil Muslims (*spit*), I tells ya.

    Oh I see. So when nice conservative capitalists like Margaret Thatcher back a US politician that's okay, it's just when nasty progressive socialists* do it there's a problem.


    *Yeah. Gordon Brown. Who'd have thunk it? :p
