The United States candidate nomination elections are an enigma to me. I'm never quite sure what a victory in a state is. Some are primaries some are caucuses, some are winner takes all some are proportional some give many delegates others few. The bitterness, the hate adverts and the vitriol between people who are supposed to be in the same party is beyond my comprehension.
If I could vote in America, I would vote for Mrs Clinton. My primary reason is that she is of Welsh decent and connections to current or past US presidents is a major boost to our tourist industry.
A secondary reason is that Mr Obama gives me the impression of a person that my grandmother would describe as fur coat but no knickers. His presentation is good, but when you strip off the outer coating, he is left naked! Obama is charismatic, lovable and cuddly, but what are his policies on anything? We just don’t know!
Mrs C may be boring when she discuses health, wealth and international relations, but she does have practical policies on these issues and at the end of the day it’s the policies and not the presentation that count!
There are a lot of people of Welsh descent who live in Wisconsin, many of whom are related to me. My message to them is - do your old country proud, vote for the Welsh girl!
