On course?

My wife and I wound up discussing Donald Trump last night over the dinner table. Her general view is that he’s preposterous. I don’t disagree with that but he’s no joke. The polls show him at the moment as the Republican Presidential candidate most likely to beat Hillary Clinton. If they stay that way, the nomination will be his.

      I doubt that. The best Merkel would have got against the Lady would have been a narrow points defeat. Any woman making it to the top in modern politics has to be special, but Maggie was a one-off.
