I’ve already talked about the “emergent realism in the DPJ”. Now, Yukio Hatoyama, who has been the perfect deputy to DPJ leader Ichiro Ozawa, is saying with regard to the next election manifest that it is “important to show the public as clearly as possible what we will do one, two, three years after we assume power”.
Give them three year for a chance to prove that they can get it done? Sounds to me like a reasonable request. Some of the things that are sure to be on the manifest are pretty nutty. But what of the alternative?
