“yes, that really is a health warning..”

In today’s Newsnight email Gavin Esler sounds a timely note of caution, on two points.

“If the polls in America are correct – and yes, that really is a health warning because I don’t trust them very much – then Barack Obama will be the next president of the United States and the Democrats will run Congress. A triumph? Again – it’s a personal view – but I don’t think so. I remember that the worst years of Bill Clinton’s presidency were not the Lewinsky affair but 1993 and 1994 when the Democrats held on to every lever of power in Washington – and made a mess of it.”
