If nominated, I shall run to Mexico. If elected, I shall fight extradition

Now that is a denial! It was said by Mo Udall when asked if he would run for president of the United States of America in 1984 (He did run in 1976, but was beaten for the Democratic nomination by Jimmy Carter).

It comes from this article on the BBC's website on non denial denials which is exactly what David Miliband has just done again on the question of whether he would run as a candidate for the Labour leadership.

I still don't think he will run, I think he would be made to run, but then I think Labour are mad to sleepwalk into a Brown premiership.
