Scotland's bid for independence puts White House in awkward diplomatic spot | WashingtonExaminer.com

Scotland's bid for independence puts White House in awkward diplomatic spot | WashingtonExaminer.com | My Scotland | Scoop.it
The United States' longstanding “special relationship” with the United Kingdom is being tested as Scotland prepares to vote on whether to become independent after a 307-year political union with Britain.
