The Veep debate

Caught some of the debate between the two main Vice-Presidential candidates from my hotel before heading to the ICC for Theresa May's closing address to conference.

Enough to confirm me in the view that I would rather see either of them as President than the candidates at the head of their respective tickets.

Without wishing any personal harm to either Donald J Trump or Hilary Clinton, I am rather reminded of the comment that a British statesman was supposed to have made when he had a similar view of two candidates on the Republican ticket in the 1980 election.

"I'm a George Bush man, myself," said Norman Tebbit according to a British newspaper.

"I support the double ticket - Reagan and a heart attack."
