He's usually good with his talking points but here he left a lot of dots unconnected for someone like me who is interested but not at all steeped in One or the issues.

I remember being initially unhappy with his relationship with W but pretty soon saw the importance. I liked what he said about people surprising you - jerks can be human, great people can be really disappointing. (Or worse - thinking of Aung San Suu Kyi)

miryclay:
His whole point is that some issues are bigger than partisan politics. Looking at things from his outsider perspective of course.

laoghaire:
Yeah I got the bigger strokes but some of the specific thoughts he spoke assuming his audience already have the background on, and that wasn't the case for me.

Bono will have a job on his hands trying to convince the UK people that their country needs to spend 0.7% of its national budget on overseas support.  I'm concerned that people here won't listen to him because he is who he is.
