The Green Bay Packer

When I look at Okada Katsuya, running from one end of Japan to the other in his suit and tie, trying to drum up support for his party and what it stands for, sweating profusely as the date of the election approaches but victory seems no closer, I am reminded of the great American football coach Vince Lombardi, who upon being asked about a particularly hard-to-bear defeat, replied:

"We didn't lose the game. We just ran out of time."
