Voice from the Commonwealth Commentary, World Views and Occasional Rants from a small 'l' libertarian in Massachussetts
"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

An assesment of Megawati's chances of maintaining power in Indonesia. She may be helping us quietly but I'm unsure of how much. I think she has squandered a very clear early madate to rule by being too timid. When she first took the presidency she was viewd by many as the first popularly chosen leader that country has had since her father. People were jubilant and willing to give her a great deal of lattitude in order to set the nation on the proper course but she has not shown strong leadership or a clearly defined policy. It looks like this will cost her power in the near future.
