Ultimately the saving grace for anti-Trump Republicans might have to come when either Rubio or Cruz drop out of the race, allowing their supporters to combine rather than split their votes. I'm no Republican but for the sake of the tenor of political debate in America, I hope they are able to find an effective counter to the Donald Dynamo soon.
I'll hold my hands up and admit it. I'm no fan of Hillary Clinton. Barring a massive shift in opinion, she's going to be the Democrats' nomination for the next U.S. President. But as much as I find her unconvincing, I'm not going to write about the Democrat race because we already know the result. Sorry Bernie Sanders, but unless Hillary falls under a bus, you're not getting it.
Did anyone ever think that Bill Clinton, perhaps the greatest politician of our time, even rivaling LBJ, would ever go "gently into that good night"? WJC now seems to be in his element, relishing the fact that GOP hitman-in-chief Karl Rove has thrown down his chain-mailed gauntlet and gone after his beloved Hillary, questioning her health and ability to serve as president.
Let's face it, what we Americans take for granted - endless political campaigns rife with cash and a terminal election elimination process rife with guile, distrust and humiliation - even our most politically savvy friends across the Atlantic scratch their collective heads and declare... "When is enough, enough?"
