We all know, because Mr Bush keeps telling us, that the way to solve all the problems in the Middle East is to ensure democracy. Which is why I nearly pissed my pants when I learnt Hamas had won in the Palestinian elections. (I'm not saying it is an appropriate response but an honest one). I'd like to have seen Mr Bush's first, private reaction. I cannot imagine it was as tame as mine.
