Go girl! Hillary Clinton wins in Texas and Ohio! The race is still on, the two Democratic riders neck and neck. It isn’t that I particularly want Hillary as President. Her wins merely shows that I was right at the beginning of this politico circus.
For the first time in many years, there is the possibility of real politics in the US. If they learn to do it properly again, they may show the rest of the west how to do it. Indeed, the race will get more interesting still.
McCain now seems the clear favourite for the Republicans – again, as I predicted. A more ‘cuddly’ contender is the only way to dampen the feeling of ‘nastiness’ – a thing they learnt from the UK Tories.
So full steam ahead! At last, somewhere, sometime, an interesting election!
