Four years ago, I wrote about Romney vs. Obama, and international poll results for the 2012 candidates. Basically, The Whole World, save one country, overwhelmingly chose Obama. (Revisit the old post to see who chose Romney)
Fast forward four years and we’re at another election. It’s still early, long before the primaries are all done. Plus, I don’t inject myself with the media hype 24×7 (a mental health choice). But from what I gather, there are still a few viable candidates on either side.
That said, if Americans’ frustration is the deciding factor, then the final fight is between the only two anti-establishment candidates:
So, yeah, I’m calling the final fight. Good bye, good ‘ol girl, Hillary. Good bye, long list of Republican has-beens and never-will-bes. The final fight is between the Vermont Socialist and the Center of His Universe.
Contest: putting my money where my mouth is
If you think I’m wrong, throw in your pick for the final fight (comment below).
If it turns out you pick the correct two (and I’m wrong), then I’ll gift you a full year’s subscription to “Gone in One Year” — free.
Get your popcorn – the bet’s on! This gets decided when both conventions decide their pick.
I just got my new wallet from Bellroy a few days ago. (Spoiler: This is one nice, fucking wallet!)
If I may, let me share a paragraph or two about how I found this wallet.
I’m watching some video when I see an ad. The ad is for a “Bellroy Travel Wallet.” Well, being your ExpatYourself guy, I’m now intrigued. And I did something I never do: I clicked on the ad.
The ad jumps to Bellroy’s website page, all about their Travel Wallet. I watch that video and I’m now more than intrigued. I’m in love. So in love, in fact, that I did something else I never do: I write a personal note to a company, asking “Can I please…?”
And so, in 10 minutes, I did two things I’d never done, and I’m feeling sorta sheepish, but excited. After some e-mail exchange, I wait. Sure enough, my wallet arrives. And it is Pure Awesomeness.
