End of An Era

Tony Blair announces that June 27th will be his last day as Prime Minister.

There is an element of poetic irony in the PM career of Blair: He came into office viewed as a Clinton-like politician who revitalized "New Labor." He leaves tied at the ideological -- and "popularity" -- hip with Clinton's successor George W. Bush, because of Iraq.

On a marginally related note, the man whose swing away a decade ago from the Tories and toward Labor helped usher in the Blair era, explains his plan to make his media company carbon-neutral.
