It's always a comfort to know that American foreign policy is in the hands of a man who was elected on the grounds that he's the first presentable black US politician there's ever been (I summarise the argument of Mr Biden), and a woman who was appointed by virtue of being the wife of old semen stain himself.

DM, you have such a way with words!

So would policy thought up by an intellectual be a good idea? Are (lots of) brains an asset to a politician? History suggests not. Are successful Presidents and Prime Ministers mere front-persons, no, their defining attribute is 'character' I reckon. No character = no good.

We're on the trickiest of tricky ground here, Roger, the sort that begins with "it all depends on what you mean by ...". I have a busy morning ahead of me but I think I will post on the subject a bit later.
