The best of politics on YouTube

This Gideon Rachman blog post is about a week old now - ancient in blogging terms - but is worth sharing. Rachman, chief foreign affairs correspondent for the Financial Times and a very lively and interesting blogger, lists his top five (which turns into seven) political YouTube moments. It includes a slightly limp montage of Australian politicians, which Rachman says he included only because he couldn't find a clip devoted solely to Paul Keating, a 'true master of political invective'.

 I wish Rachman had found room in his list for Bill Clinton, who lost his composure somewhat when Boris Yeltsin told a joke. Warning: laughter is infectious.
