I think Livingstone's rabid support for Nato's war against Yugoslavia
indicated
that he was a problematic candidate to say the least. In many ways, he reminds
me of our own "socialist" in Congress, Bernie Sanders of Vermont, who makes
endless speeches about the need to uplift the American worker but votes to
blow
Yugoslav workers to kingdom come.
