"Change" - It's Not Just For Breakfast Anymore

Ghana's opposition leader, John Atta Mills, became Ghana's new President-Elect a few hours ago. His National Democratic Congress Party narrowly defeated rival, Nana Akufo-Add's New Patriotic Party, to wrest control of the government.

And guess what his platform was?

Get ready to hear that phrase a lot around the world. Except in Cuba, and North Korea.

  • Seems everything old is new again....didn't Hitler run on that platform as well?

  • Yes, Jim, though that's close to Godwin. ;)

    All successful politicians run on a change platform -- Bush 43 won on being a "change" from the licentious embarrassment that Clinton was.

    Only the infantile have to have it spelt out for them, though.

  • I commented at Althouse during the election:

    My own personal philosophy regarding change is that any worthwhile change is always uphill and requires sustained effort. It axiomatic in chemistry than any uphill change from A to B has a tipping point (transition state) that resembles the outcome B. In other words, we don’t decide to lose weight, join a gym and credibly say we’ve changed (psychologically perhaps, but not physically). Real, actual change of the sort we desire doesn’t happen until well along the path from A to B. My biggest problem with Obama is that he won’t tell us what B is. He beseeches us to change , almost for its own sake.

    word verification: "chike"
