Ok – so I’m glad I’m not an American because I don’t know if I would vote for Barack or Hillary but this quote by Barack Obama:
“I am suspicious of hype. The fact that my 15 minutes of fame has extended a little longer than 15 minutes is somewhat surprising to me and completely baffling to my wife”-
has got to be the most down to earth thing I have heard from anyone as high profile as this man.
What is the best thing to me is that the US actually has a chance to turn their circumstances around – whether it’s Hillary or Barack they’re going to be ok. What more could you hope for with your neighbours?
And no, I am not even contemplating other options because the results would just be too dire.
