WIn-win in Britain

Great Britain will hold its elections on May 5. We’ll be following the run-up, but with much less anxiety than we followed recent elections in Australia and Iraq. I take the simple-minded position that the British elections are a rare “win-win” situation for American conservatives. The Brits will select either the party headed by our greatest friend, Tony Blair, or the conservative party.
The question sill arises, which result should American conservatives pull for. Patrick Ruffini is pulling for a Blair victory. So is Jim Geraghty at TKS. He invokes Humphrey Bogart’s great lines from “The Maltese Falcon” — “when a man’s partner is killed you’re supposed to do something about it” etc. I’m sympathetic to this position, but will reserve judgment for now.
