What was hardest to bear, when the television this evening showed the reporters crowding around Representative Noda Seiko and then Representative Satō Yukari, asking them both what they know about their respective fates (as if their fates had ever been in doubt) and both of them saying, "I have not received any communication from the Elections Measures Chairman so I cannot comment"?

That both of them are smarter, more conscientious (survivors of more scurrilous innuendo and attacks by the scandal sheets) and better attuned to the needs of the electorate than any of the party leaders they must abnegate themselves before.
