US presidential election…..

The biggest news in the biggest economy in the world is obviously the upcoming Presidential Election. The Republicans have pretty much decided on their candidate, the Vietnam war hero John McCain, but the Democratic nominees are still slugging it out in a potentially damaging fight to see who will represent them in the autumn polls. The battle between Obama and Clinton is every bit as enthralling as the actual election itself promises to be.

Capital2 has a vested interest in US politics as many of our main clients are headquartered there. A quick poll round the offices shows our ideological support is behind Obama to beat Clinton and then to beat McCain. However there are doubts about whether Obama can mobilize enough support to outwit the Republicans and win the entire thing. We hope so, but there are bound to be a lot of twists and turns yet to come.

In our January predictions for 2008 we stated that Bloomberg would step in to race as an independent but this hasn’t happened, ah well, you can’t win them all!
