Ed Miliband tries to have his New Labour cake and eat it too

Now that Britain's Liberal Democrats have finished executing their incredible exercise in self-delusion at their party caucus, it's on to Labour.

Party leader Ed Miliband, not being part of a coalition that offers nothing to its junior partner but table scraps of prestige, doesn't have to lead his forces in self-delusion. Instead, this New Labourite has to pretend he "understands" Old Labour, while yet showing British elites he doesn't AGREE with Old Labour, for the most part.

By those standards, he was a rousing success! Picture Obama being more subtle in his professed admiration for Reagan, and doing it as part of the 2008 DNC, and you get the idea.
