Nick Clegg on Morning Joe

The Deputy Prime Minister of Great Britain visiting Joe and Mika on Morning Joe. While Washington dithers the British, after an election produced no one party with a ruling majority, now have a government with a Conservative Prime Minister and a Liberal Democrat (Mr. Clegg) as Deputy. The governing coalition has produced an austerity program designed to reduce the British governments staggering debt load. This coalition has forced both Conservative and L.D. to support measures unpopular with their bases, and actually govern like adults. What a novel concept. Doing things that are in the national interest, and actually reading and understanding numbers and policy and long term implications of the same. He said he was not reading the new Tony Blair book. Good interview.
