Political analyst blogger MTC about unpopular Naoto Kan:
"Unlike his predecessors (...) he was not a rich man. His only forms of wealth he possessed were those decency and diligence, both of which he displayed during his term in office. He fought off not once but three times a mugging by Ozawa Ichiro, the greatest political meddler of the last 30 years. He may have been too ready to speak inconvenient truths and a terrible campaign organizer -- but at least you knew he cared about the country and its future."
