    Obviously it is none of my business as I am not a US citizen but just for the heck of it why not to try to make just a little prediction ? My prediction of the result of the US presidential race : 6 to 4 chance of Obama victory against Romney (who will be the GOP candidate). Why ? Basically if one ignores all the noise (in the GOP race the popularity was shifting in about 3 weeks – 1 month cycles -  it was first Palin then Bachmann then Perry,  then Christie, then Cain, and now Gingrich) the candidate will be the one who will raise the most funds and gets the biggest support of the media. And the same holds true for the presidential race. 

    Just to make sure that nobody gets offended for my sticking the nose in the US politics – in my country it is 100 times worse – that is a total Republica Banana – a total paradise for corporate interests and oligarchic groups.

    As to the Euro and its fate, I cannot predict the future (and I am totally unclear as to what the future holds) but I have a local economist who is total love-object of the media whose predictions I consider a great contrarian indicator. For instance in May it is a great time to into the stock market and that the US dollar is going to decline…. And a couple of days ago he said that the Euro is in the last throes….
