Well, sort of; you know, 'maybe, baby', 'fingers crossed' and all that sort of thing. Even so, I keep coming across snippets in the 'noozmeja' to the effect that the predicted electoral tsunami due to hit in the Autumn which will wash away Republican control of Congress might just turn out to be a mere ripple instead! I was somewhat sceptical when I first heard it but it has since been confirmed in sundry news sites but, best of all, my favourite 'bellwether' on all matters concerning the Democrat party, Carpentariat, a site run by Mr. P. M. Carpenter who is from top to toe a confirmed Rooseveltian worshipper! Alas, he suffers with galloping TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome) which makes his site somewhat tedious to read as the same old 'hellfire and brimstone' is poured over those carefully-sculpted, golden, Presidential locks virtually every day!
The only relief is the occasional switch of target towards Sen. Bernie Sanders. Of course, my well-read, Brit newsnerds readers will know all about Bernie but for the benefit of the brain-dead who are far more interested in that damned wedding!, Bernie is a sort of American 'Jezza' - yeeeeees, quite! Anyway, Mr. Carpenter 'went off on one' a day or so ago because some of Bernie's acolytes had won various nominations to stand in the forthcoming election and that could only bode ill for the traditional Democratic party - oh dear what a pity never mind!
Also, there are indications, I put it no stronger, that the Republicans may well do better than the Democrat-demented 'meeja' would have you believe. It is beginning to look as though it might be another example of m'Lord Wellington's "A damned fine run thing!" That should send poor, old Carpenter absolutely bonkers!
