US Election 2016

The new President will face huge problems, though he may be the cure rather than a symptom. It is hard to be optimistic about his chances

The new President was elected by voters who feel that he is on their side. They are probably right: he will put America back to work    

“We are all living with the consequences of the great American abdication of the last decade.”

Hillary Clinton may manage to knock Humpty Trumpty off his wall, but who will put the United States back together again?  

“Theresa May’s safe pair of hands seems a great blessing after the vacuum Cameron and Osborne left us in”

The new leader of the free world will face a choice — continue the declinism of Barack Obama or reassert America’s global influence

The two likely Presidential candidates have radically different visions on how to restore America’s finances — and both pose grave dangers

Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State means her reputation is inextricably bound to Obama’s doctrine of retrenchment, but Mark Landler argues her own foreign policy is much more hardline

“If the Donald is the GOP candidate, he will lose. The only question then will be how great the damage to the rest of the party will be”

It is hard to see anyone else winning this year. But Hillary’s White House tenancy will be turbulent, with Obama sniping from the wings
