Clinton risk?

Justin Webb | 06:26 UK time, Tuesday, 2 December 2008

The headline says it all. The problem with the Clinton choice is not highfalutin and policy driven - it is as this piece suggests, visceral and centred on what goes on when things go wrong. Meanwhile, I wonder if all the short people in the Obama camp end up ganging up on him in revenge for this.

On another subject (prompted by listening to a busker in London) I read recently that Obama's favourite classical music is Bach's Cello Suites. I know next to nothing about music but anyone who knows these sublime works, disciplined, ambitious, yet achingly beautiful, will know that a presidential candidate who loves them will almost certainly win. Wish I had known it last year.
