How a pro-nuclear LDP can even show up in Fukushima city to start its campaign with a straight face, let alone get applause there is beyond me....then again TIJ.

“The point in question is whether we will move ahead with tasks we must tackle or will go back to old politics,”

Well said Noda-san! I hope the people listen! However, Noda-san must show his alternative plan. It is all well and good to say old politics is not the way forward, but he has offered very little evidence of his modernized intentions.

As much as Noda is ineffectual, especially in regards to Fukushima, he's the only one who stands a chance of listening to the people there.

Election is in the air. I hope by this time these people whom we're going to vote for won't just talk the talk but also can walk the talk. We need a REAL LEADER. We need a leader who have a good record and is already proven in the society. Don't elect someone who's new and famous but don't have any record to show at all. This is absurd. We should be SMART voters and must not be swayed by promises of such official. Remember, what comes next to 'I promise' is 'I'm sorry'. Then again, Good luck!

Good luck, for there will never be a strong consensus on any matter in this country anymore.

The strongest among the new “third force” parties is the Japan Restoration Party, launched this year by the maverick mayor of Osaka, Toru Hashimoto, and now headed by outspoken former Tokyo Gov Shintaro Ishihara.

Strong with the force they are not. Master Yoda

Yoda: [closes his eyes for a moment] Difficult to see. Always in motion is the future. Abe & Noda: I've got to go to them. Yoda: Decide you must, how to serve them best. If you leave now, help them you could; but you would destroy all for which they have fought, and suffered.

The Minshuto logo reminds me of Tepco's logo.

After all bad apples left Minshutoo, it is doing fine with Noda. He is better choice than a crazy horse Abe.

Yep. Noda is so confident that he listed himself on the proportional representation, quite rare for a residing Prime Minister.

No matter where you go in the world it's more endless lies, gaffes, and backpedaling from politicians.
