Clinton tells Blair's party to avoid Democrats fat« Thread Started on Sept 27, 2006, 3:10pm » --------------------------------------------------------------------------------Clinton tells Blair's party to avoid Democrats fatePOSTED: 1459 GMT (2259 HKT), September 27, 2006 read at source: ... MANCHESTER, England (AP) -- Former U.S. President Bill Clinton sought to boost the badly divided Labour Party Wednesday, warning supporters that if they let Britons take the government's achievements for granted the party could suffer the fate of America's defeated Democrats.Delegates at Labour's annual conference gave a celebrity's welcome to a president they love far better than the current one, George W. Bush, who is widely despised in the party. Clinton charmed a packed auditorium with a 40-minute speech in which he lavished praise on Prime Minister Tony Blair and Treasury chief Gordon Brown, Blair's likely successor.He said that because Labour had been so successful in strengthening Britain's economy and modernizing its society, there was a danger that voters would assume the improvements were "just a part of the landscape" and that any party that came to power would make similar choices."I have been there," he said, recalling that his administration had cut America's deficit drastically only to watch it balloon after Bush took office. "I say that to remind you that it can change quickly."
