Former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair has a new book on shelves right now called The Journey. In the book Blair has made some news worthy statements like saying George W. Bush “had genuine integrity and as much political courage as any leader I ever met” (CNN reports) and that Clinton was his “political soulmate”. He also made some big statements about [lastfm]U2[/lastfm] frontman [lastfm]Bono[/lastfm] …
Blair says that Bono has the qualities to be a “president or a prime minister”.
He also writes:
“He had an absolutely natural gift for politicking, was great with people, very smart and an inspirational speaker.”
“I knew he could work with George [W Bush] well, and with none of the prissy disdain of his ilk”
