Slipping Away

Clinton’s fairly convincing victory in Pennsylvania was encouraging, but Obama has come surging back in North Carolina, and Hillary didn’t win by much in Indiana, so it’s looking almost certain that Obama will be the nominee.

In terms of policy it wouldn’t make much difference – he would probably get the troops out of Iraq a bit sooner, she has a better health plan; either of them would make a perfectly decent President.

My worry is still over Obama’s electability. McCain could win in November, which would be an absolute disaster for the US, and the rest of the world.

I’m sure Hillary will be President one day; I just hope it’s in 2009 rather than 2013.
