Not only does the new Angus Reid poll has us up a point to 22%, but Howard Dean has backed the Lib Dems, and Nick Clegg in particular, to win at the election.
Governor Dean rails against the unfair voting system and recognises that it will limit what we can achieve, but his endorsement is still very welcome. He is someone, after all, who has see a lot of high quality politicians close at hand and met with all the parties when he was over in the UK last year. It's great that he has chosen to back Nick.
(Oh, and I like him cos I got to have a chat with him last year)
