Well despite it being a year till we find out who the next President of the USA is going to be, it seems the election campaign has started.  The BBC have appointed a north american Editor the sensible and impartial Justin Webb, who has started a blog of his own.  The rumours of dasterdly doing by the Clintons are starting to appear, and although I can’t find any, I’m sure there’ll be similar regarding the Republicans.  Much as we complain about our politics and politicians, the Americans manage to make more a full blown musical than a song and dance about it.
