The Economist's Election Overview

Interesting article on the election and what it means for Dems and Repubs (also, it's written in British - colour!)

I tend to dissagree that there is a "Democratic civil war", and that this "civil war" will give the Republicans a chance to reunite under one candidate. The Republicans don't need the Democratic Party's continuting primary race to unite the Republicans. They would have done that anyway.

As to the Civil War analogy, I think having two strong condidates is nothing but good for Democracy and the country. Having said that, I do see stronger fractures possibly materialising during the convention in Denver if the Democrats can't come together behind one candidate. We'll see. It's not over...
