*That* Hot Press interview with Brian Cowen from May 2007.
Is Brian Cowen Ireland's Gordon Brown? Maybe, except Cowen seems to to genuinely like Bertie Ahern. For now he's more interested in tackling the Rainbow coalition – whom he accuses of treating the electorate like fools.
Minister for Finance Brian Cowen is widely perceived by political analysts to be the natural successor to Bertie Ahern as leader of the Fianna Fáil party.
