The British are coming! . . . to Yale. Starting next year, Tony Blair will lead a seminar on faith and globalization and participate in other events at the prestigious university. Blair, who served for 10 years as Britain's prime minister, has been appointed Yale's Howland Distinguished Fellow.
Blair will keep his 10-day-per-month commitment, apparently, as the special envoy for the Middle East Quartet, which is comprised of the United Nations, United States, Russia, and the European Union.
A few months ago I saw Tony Blair speak on women's issues. He seemed like a regular guy with a lot of creative ideas. Do you think Tony Blair's leadership experience makes him a qualified teacher of faith and globalization? Would you take his course, even if you didn't agree with his politics?
