    I wish Blair could win, but that his party would lose. I realize that such is impossible. Even if it could happen, Blair would then be ineffective. I think the Blair government has made very serious mistakes regarding its virtually unqualified support of UK ratification of the EU Constitutional Treaty, and its startling support for EU weapons sales to China. Blair made the right choice on Iraq, and in comparison to France and Germany, his economic policies have been more reasonable.

    There's some differences predicted on how Labour will do, but all seem to think Blair will be re-elected:

    Blair will win.
    The Labour party can't lose, or it would be really surprising, and then, if the Labour win, Blair is automatically Prime Minister, as chief of the Labour.
