Where Angles Fear to Tread

That went badly

… Super Tuesday is over and Hilary Clinton did well (as expected) and looks to now have cemented her Democratic nomination. Not much of a surprise but I have a fear that she is the only one who can’t beat Trump when it comes to polling day.

As a career politician who has been in the public eye for so long, there is a danger that her background (when compared with Trump’s) won’t sit well with the American electorate. Of course the best outcome is still that the Republican delegates realise the danger they are in and elect a moderate candidate. (And I don’t mean Cruz who is almost as bad as Trump and in a normal election would be scarey enough!).

I’m not holding my breath, or hoping much though. So we’re still left with a hope that Clinton will win again, and then get beaten in 4 years to a credible candidate. Not the best of hopes!

Super Tuesday Looming Large

Filed under: Politics, US Politics — Right Angle @ 7:33 pm

Super Tuesday is here in the US, and it looks likely that Hilary (Dem) and Trump (Rep) will be the main beneficiaries when we wake up in the morning.

Which brings me to the problem come November. As regular readers (if we still have any) already know I will be live-blogging the American Presidential election in November. He is slightly more left than me (in UK politics) and so we traditionally take up the sides of Rep (me) and Dem (him). Fortunately for me this started with Cain (and not Bush) and so I could just about support (some) of what he said and his policies — then he announced Palin as his running mate and it all went wrong!

Now if Trump does well – and all the media commentators are saying he will – we could be in the unenvieable position of having Trump as the Republican presidential canditate. No matter what happens in the next few months, I just can’t bring myself to even pretend to support him, his policies, his comments or the Republican nomination. So, please, citizens of the US who can vote for the Republican nominee, can you note vote for Trump… otherwise this blog will be a bit boring in November whilst me and my fellow blogger both support Hilary – not because she is the best candidate in America, but because the other option is Trump…. shudder!
