A thrilling contest
How thrilling has the contest become between Mrs Clinton and Mr Obama! It is a rare pleasure to be able to step aside from partisanship in a political contest - and to lay aside musings of deeper and more difficult matters - to savour a closely run race between athletes of remarkable intellect and personal aura. I hear that Mrs Clinton now has 1,045 delegates whilst Mr Obama lays claim to 960 and both are far short of the total of 2,025 they need to secure a nomination for the presidency.
