By George, he is good for India

INDIANS THINK George W. Bush is more or less good for them and the United States a suspect but necessary partner for their country.

INDIANS THINK George W. Bush is more or less good for them and the United States a suspect but necessary partner for their country. A Hindustan Times-C fore poll of the six largest cities on the eve of US President George W. Bush's visit shows Indian attitudes toward the sole superpower as a decidedly mixed bag.

The country is split when it comes to Bush himself. Slender majorities saw him as a friend of India and even prepared to invite him home. While hardly a ringing endorsement, it should be remembered that in most parts of the world the pro-Bush vote would be in single figure.
