Considering churchill once called gandhi a "half naked fakir"

Fakir is urdu for witch doctor....not a euphemism for an expletive btw.

I'd say blair stands a chance at surpassing churchill.

Yes Churchill was never the most dignified figure (except when he orated), he was known for eating steak and kidney pie + chocolate while smoking a cigar, all at once!

I think Blair has made a decent fist of things, he's certainly a figure with more personal credibility than Bush, and from what I hear alot more dignity away from the public eye also.
