Alex Massie, Daily Beast
This was an extraordinary day in Great Britain, a day that began with signs that David Cameron could be moving into Downing Street on Tuesday, and ended in utter confusion. By the end of it all, the country's political leaders had tried, and failed, to form a government.
Since last week's election, only one thing seemed clear: Nick Clegg would not make a deal with a Labour Party led by Gordon Brown, preferring instead to talk to the party that won most votes and most seats: Cameron's Conservatives.
