Long-term thinking, please

Here are some thoughts on what the Social Democratic party should do now [Swedish].

Tuscany was great, of course (thanks Martin and Kristina for hosting us). A very nice and outgoing owner of a restaurant on a hill close to Ravi said that his mother, who is running the restaurant with him, would serve Usama Bin Laden but not George W. Bush. I was pretty chocked to hear such a harsh statement, and I am not exactly pro-Bush, but I guess it says something about the image of the US in some parts of Europe.

Paul Westerberg is about to release a new record.

The GOP is facing a lot of problems right now, notably FoleyGate. Read more here (New Dem Dispatch) and here (The New Republic).

Last but not least, here is a new site collecting news from Sweden’s trade union press. Now I am going to a post-election Social Democratic "party". Life goes on anyway...

I´d like to be the "Pete Wehner" of the Social Democratic party!

What do you think about the return of Carl Bildt as the "new" Swedish foreign minister?

He will cause problems in the long run, I think. What was he up to in 1994-2006, what was his stance on the war in Iraq, what has his company done in Sudan...?
