The answer to Dr Alf’s question is ‘probably not’.

Why?

Because American Presidential campaigns are 2 years long and cost at least $2 billion gbp to mount and by the time they have finished many of each candidates indiscretions will have been aired and many will have been pushed to one side.

People, myself included, take the pragmatic view which is that we are not electing a candidate for the Papacy and that practically everyone placed under enough media scrutiny has “baggage” and is at the very least full of imperfections.

In the last analysis it boils down to who can deliver the most prosperity for the most people that should decide who takes the top job and that is a matter of media perception plus a mastery of NLP these days.

What we are observing is a play with a number of acts and scenes.

In this first scene Donald Trump will take the Republicans by storm, then in the next one, he will run as an independent and split the Republican vote.

In Act 2, we will see Bernie Saunders falter, either through old-age or some dark secret we are not yet aware of but which will be “”discovered” later at a critical point in the campaign.

Act 3 will see the 2 chosen frontrunners Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton forging ahead, thus presenting voters with a “real choice.

Act 4 will then winnow the 2 contestants down to 1, which in my book means Hillary Clinton will win because she is cleverer than Jeb Bush ,will do better in televised debates and will be more popular with woman, the Jewish community, small business, new high tech entrepreneurs representing new money and Blacks.

According to the UK’s left-leaning newspaper, The Independent, David Cameron is poised to climb down on his stubborn refusal not to accept more than just a few hundred Syrian refugees into the UK, with an announcement on an expansion of the numbers offered sanctuary in Britain expected in the coming days.

The pressure to take large numbers of refugees is increasing, as the crisis is increasingly reported as a humanitarian disaster.
