Warming up that tongue

The Guardian's Patrick Wintour is clearly warming up to be the big cheerleader for Brown that he has been for Blair. Sometimes when journalists tell you what politicians sincerely "believe" they are just being naive. Here Wintour is just spining:

[Brown's] aides believe David Cameron's only selling point is the offer to the country of change from 10 years of Blairism, leading Mr Brown yesterday repeatedly to promise that when he takes over on Wednesday he "will lead and heed the call of change".
Meanwhile, the Times has the spin that Harriet Harman's victory is an empty one.

Her victory is not empty. She has more legitimacy than Gordon - something that she can fall back on should Gordon try to sideline her. I tend to disagree with her, but her victory is certainly not empty.
