And they're off...

I love electoral campaigns, especially when there is someone I can root for and against. The campaigns in the USA are of special interest to me because there is so much at stake there. I get involved not exclusively on the ground of the issues but equally or even more so, in terms of the intuitions and visceral reactions I have about the respective candidates.
I invite you to do one or both of the following: a) Make your predictions as to who will win the nomination in either party, and b) say who you like, dislike - and why.
It's up to you whether you state whatever biases you might have. I am an inactive, largely pessimistic socialist. I consider that the era of macro-politics is virtually over and that the best we or I at any rate can practice is micro-politics. I contribute to Oxfam and Amnesty and try always to treat people as I would hope that a truly humane government might treat the electorate as a whole.
If there is any interest in this blog, I will post my favourites in the two campaigns, who I think will win, etc.
Power to the people!
