Poor Lonely Tony Blair

Interesting commentary in The Guardian about the strange position Tony Blair has been put in regarding the US presidential election: he can't back the Democrats. Blair has swiveled his loyalty to Bush after his old flame Clinton left town, so he's maintained his alliance with the US (sort of) but simultaneously alienated himself from the rest of Europe and the developed world. Now that American Democratic candidates are letting the Bush/Blair policy have it, what's Tony to do? Change sides again? It will be interesting to see how Blair deals with Bush and UK/US relations when the really vicious campaigning starts.
