Candidates for the leadership of the main opposition Democratic Party of Japan, from left, Akira Nagatsuma, Goshi Hosono and Katsuya Okada, pose for photographers before their debate at the Japan National Press Club in Tokyo on Thursday. The new leader will be elected on Jan 18 at the party's extraordinary convention. Okada wears an eye patch as he underwent a retinal detachment surgery recently.

I don't think there's much in it between them and all those grandads in the LDP, personally.

I've got this horrible feeling that Abe will be laughing himself to sleep tonight.

I doubt he'll be losing much sleep, anyway.

Where's Hatoyama and Kan?
