THERE, I’ve said it.
In just over a fortnight, Senator John McCain will be elected America’s 44th president, confounding the pundits and the polls. Barack Obama will become the newest member of a not-very-exclusive club of Failed Democrat Presidential Candidates.
Why do I say this at a time when, apparently, some bookmakers are already paying out on Obama winning?
Do I really need to say it? Please don’t make me. Just read this.
Obviously, I hope I’m wrong, as do the vast majority of sensible UK citizens.
But whatever political intuition I may or may not have for the politics of a country I’ve visited fewer than half a dozen times is telling me Obama’s not going to make it.
