Good writing on that blog and very down to earth. I like that it is not really a mouthpiece or a marketing tool, but just her saying whatever. I'd like to see a politician here try that.

She is a great politician, apart from being a Social Democrat of course. There is some talk of her being the next Prime Minister of Sweden. And very down to earth its true-- from her blog, 'One thing is clear: The constitution referenda in France and the Netherlands have not helped Jean-Claude Juncker to stop smoking'. I don't understand why there aren't more 'normal people' as politicans in the US. They all seem to be aiming for a larger than life image-- isn't it good enough just to be a normal person with common sense?
