British Prime Minister Gordon Brown is getting flack from politicians for having something good to say about Obama. The whole world is dreading McCain.
CNN: In a commentary published Wednesday, Brown hailed Obama's proposals for a mortgage foreclosure prevention fund and said he believed the U.S. Democratic Party is the organization offering policies to help people through the current economic woes.
"In the electrifying U.S. presidential campaign, it is the Democrats who are generating the ideas to help people through more difficult times," Brown wrote in Parliamentary Monitor magazine, a monthly publication that covers parliamentary and government issues.
"To help prevent people from losing their home, Barack Obama has proposed a foreclosure prevention fund to increase emergency pre-foreclosure counseling, and help families facing repossession."
Brown's Labour Party is traditionally allied to Obama's Democrats -- but under international conventions, foreign leaders refrain from intervening in ballots overseas.
