Democrats have been left guessing which way Hilary Rodham Clinton will cast her vote, given the unpredictable nature of a two horse race; where one of the two horses has already been turned into glue. Meanwhile the world’s media have tried to make the Democratic nomination feel as unexpected as next week’s Lottery draw, the Shadow Cabinet or Russian urine samples.
The air of suspense has been heightened by Bill Clinton declaring his support for his ‘one true love’, which rules out various Senators but rules in various interns. Although to her credit, Hilary is the first female candidate to be nominated from all the people called Clinton not called William.
Mrs Clinton herself is wary of throwing her support behind anyone who could damage her chances of the Presidency. By contrast Donald Trump prefers to throw political grenades at his opponents while dancing the macarena with the pin in his teeth.
The suspense is unbearable and easily on par with – will Tottenham choke at the end of the season, will Taylor Swift get dumped and will Jeremy Corbyn’s back be wearing a set of steak knives? With the only surprise being – how did Kanye West become the sensible candidate for 2020?
