Tuesday's Guardian has an interesting piece on Blogs by politicians and in particular, George Bush's new Blog, which is apparently written for him. They write, "The first politician - of whatever political hue - who uses a blog to reveal humanity, warmth, humour and intelligence (and it is not being overly optimistic to assume that there are politicians with all of the above) will truly be seen as a leader for our times. It will never be enough to secure election, but it might do a bit to remove some of the cynicism with which most of us view politicians. I imagine someone on one or other side of the Atlantic will soon make this conceptual leap. The big question is whether they'll be able to type."
