  The greatest electoral show on earth
There is a rather nice lady on my course who is from the United States. She'd been a finance director for some congressional bid and worked for Sen. Patty Murray before she came over here to do a masters.

Anyway we were having a chat and she was telling me about Sen. Murray and I was going like "She's the one from washington state along with Maria Cantwell who was the one who got elected last time" and she was like "How do you know that? Most people in the states don't know who Patty Murray is." Well I have to admit more than a passing interest in American politics.

Not many people I know are really excited about the mid terms nor were they rooting for Rep. Anthony Weiner to win the democrat primary for mayor of New York nor are they seeing if Obama is going to get a VP nomination. The internet means that we on this side of the pond can see it all unravel in brilliant technicolour detail. So try the New York Times it even has videos

Perhaps there should be a support group.
