Dutch Deputy Minister: Disaster if McCain Wins Election

Deputy Minister of Health Jet Bussemaker (Labor) said in a television program recently that it will be a “big disaster” if John McCain wins the US elections. She said that this is her personal opinion and not that of the Dutch cabinet. Earlier this year Deputy Prime Minister Wouter Bos, who is the leader of the Labor pary, also expressed his preference for Barack Obama, after which he was reprimanded by Prime Minister Balkenende (Christian Democrats). Parliamentarian Hans van Baalen of the Liberal opposition party asked the Prime Minister to reprimand Bussemaker.
