Politics Junkie

I’ve been an American politics junkie since, age 14, I got caught up in George McGovern’s 1972 campaign against Richard Nixon. So I’ll be watching tonight’s results from Texas and Ohio with great interest. As a Brit, it doesn’t behove me to take sides in Obama vs Hillary but my favourite live band, Canada’s Arcade Fire, have been campaigning for Obama in the last week (two of them were born in the US, so I guess they have the right). Here they are in Cleveland, performing a rather apt Sam Cooke classic.
