One cannot but think that Hurricane Sandy is one of the most potent factors in the American Presidential election campaign. War, disaster on a large scale always is a benefir for a present who can rush about looking Presidential declaring one disasterzone after another and swaying the hearts of any undecided voters while the challenger has to try to play the backstage as best he can. As such Sandy has come at the best of all possible moments for Barack who was starting to look at though he was going to narrowly lose this one.
Two days ago I would not have placed any bets on either candidate, today I would put a cautious sum on old Barack the magician. Last time round George W. Bush made sure that nobody could beat a Democrat, not even a McCain, this time round the weather seems to be rallying around for an already battered Presidency.. We shall see.
