As I write Mark and Madeleine have hot footed it to a London pub where Democrats Abroad have organised a gathering of young supporters. We’re hoping to come live from the pub later………assuming we have no technical problems!
He’s won the Democratic nomination. But as Barack Obama prepares to make one of the biggest speeches of his political career later today, the whispers have begun over whether he is the right man to take them to the White House. Some people argue that if the Democrats don’t win now when will they, after the mistakes of the Bush administration.
So did they pick the wrong person? Is Obama nothing more than a good orator? Was Hillary the woman who could win this election, with her experience and her husband by her side?
Are the divisions in the party so deep that ardent Hillary supporters will now turn to the Republicans, despite the Clintons backing?
Is Obama the man you believe will be the next President of America? The face of change?
