Atlantic Eye: Helen Clark plays her hand
WELLINGTON, New Zealand, Sept. 16 (UPI) -- After nearly 10 years as New Zealand prime minister, Helen Clark will disband Parliament on Oct. 3. She has called elections for Nov. 8 -- just four days after the U.S. elections. She hopes for a strong wind across the Pacific to help her in her uphill quest for re-election.
