Vote DPJ for, er, more of the same
Anyone naive enough to believe the DPJ will sweep away politics as usual in an orgy of THE CHANGE WE NEED yadda yadda yadda, could do worse than read this nice CV summary in the Japan Times showing their wealth and wealth of old-school connections of the brothers Hatoyama (one of whom is the leader of the DPJ forces of truth, justice and you know). If you thought Aso was loaded, check this guy out, forget mines run on POW slave labour, we're talking heir to Bridgestone. The only thing is the article pontificates that the Hatoyamas are the Kennedy clan of Japan. Er, kinda. Apart from the stunning lack of charisma or leadership ability, that is.
