Whatever the outcome might be, the current US election has become an extended thriller, with plot twists coming thick and fast. Every day brings something new. And it’s set to run for another two months. The suspense is unbearable.
I’m hoping that Trump wins. I think he’s the best US president of the last 50 years, maybe the best president ever. I’m not even critical of his bombast or his language, as many others are. Trump is a phenomenon.

The pundits are also players in an unfolding plot that rivals the Watergate affair (which I can remember).
But it’s great theatre.
I’m going to be feeling dazed and empty when it’s over, like after watching some epic movie.
Except it’s not a movie: it’s history being written.
