Thatcher's Death Marks the End of an Era

Actually I withdraw that Hilllsborogh statment I just made as it was a tragedy. I just wish you would let it lie now. It wasnt Thatcher, that is jut clutching at straws. It was supporters cramming in when they hadnt got tickets, inpet policing and corrupt police changing statments. Everybody now needs to move on.

When Margaret Thatcher was elected England's first female prime minister of England in the spring of 1979, I was 12 years old and my father had been a congressman for less than four months. To me, it seemed as if it would be only a short while until my own country followed suit and elected a woman to serve as president.

Of course, in my mind, it would be a conservative woman, strong willed, committed, determined and articulate. Like Thatcher.

Thatcher served as prime minster for more than 11 years, stepping down only after a power struggle within her own Conservative...
