Japan's PM Resigns
Us Americans sometimes forget that we arenâ€™t the only nation with a disliked and ineffective government. Word out of Japan today is that Prime Minister Yasuo Fukuda has resigned, apparently because he felt his low approval ratings would impede parliamentâ€™s ability to get anything accomplished. The resignation will likely take effect once the ruling party picks a new leader.
I wonder if we can convince our entire congress to resign over low approval ratings?
