    It will depend on the SFO inquiry, so I voted that way.

    But he keeps getting back up.

    Sometimes it's better to get down and stay down....

    See, I'm thinking no matter what way the inquiry goes, he's gone for good. He didn't retain his electorate seat in 2005 and New Zealand First was just over the threshold. Considering John Key has ruled out a coalition with National, I think right-leaning voters will be wary of voting for NZ First and they won't make it past 5% this time.

    But I'm sure he'll find a new career hosting talkback ...

    I don't think he'll get back in. Tauranga seems to have tired of him, and NZ First are unlikely to reach the 5% threshold in the next election. But, he'll always be around.

    Good to see another Kiwi back on the Boards. (Have we hit double figers yet?)

    Winston will get back into the game somehow.
    I like him but may not ever vote for him.

    But it's going to be OK, because apparently John Key IS JUST LIKE BARACK OBAMA. (Jeeze ... what a douche - Key, not Obama.)

    Why is everyone talking like yanks around here? Douche... is possibly the stupidest word that's used as an insult. Solo and now STH?! WHY?! :p

    John Key wishes he had 1 percent of the coolness that is Barack Obama.
    Has everyone watched the Barack Roll?

    Maybe Helen should compare herself to Hillary Clinton :)

    SFL, I think douche is a much under-utilised insult.

    I love Obama. Fingers crossed for the US election ... it's going to be close.

    It's kind of a really gross insult, if that word refers to the medical equipment.

    My boss is going to the US for a month so I've asked him to bring me back an Obama banner if he can find one. The polls are looking close even after the dem convention ... I think we might see a repeat of 2004, and it will go either way 51-49. I just hope the upcoming debates will change things.

    Yeah, Obama really talks the talk. I think what he lacks in experience he can compensate for in terms of inspiration, and he's picked a solid, old-school running mate.

    Jono, I can't believe you just said that and kept a straight face. That's like saying "the sea at Piha tastes salty". IT'S SALTY EVERYWHERE.

    THEY'RE ALL CROOKS AND LIARS. lol
