With the London Olympics beginning next week, it is hardly surprising that sporting terms have acquired currency, even in politics. The buzzword these days is ‘cornered’ and everyone is suddenly getting ‘cornered’. The NDA was ‘cornered’ when APJ Abdul Kalam decided not to contest the presidential election and the Shiv Sena and Janata Dal (United) broke ranks.

Approaching US Presidential Elections

10 Nov 2011

In a year’s time, Americans will be deciding if they are ready to give President Obama another term in the White House. The present trends do not favor Obama but the Republicans have not found a good candidate yet. Whatever happens, the United States is moving deeply into an election cycle will affect American international behavior and therefore the international system.

Preserving the integrity of coalitions

Preserving the integrity of coalitions

21 Jul 2012

The current presidential election has blurred the distinction between the main political alliances in the country and raised questions over the integrity of existing coalitions.  Although one spoke of the death of ideology in a metaphorical sense when the era of bizarre political combinations began at the federal level in 1996, the strange bedfellows we see in the current presidential campaign should prompt us to declare the “sad demise” of ideology in a clinical sense as well.

Need to harness ‘swing’ vote

Need to harness ‘swing’ vote

16 Nov 2012

Unlike the Left that sees itself as an international tendency, the Centre-Right is inclined to be more national in its outlook. The conclusive re-election of US President Barack Obama was consequently an event celebrated by the Left and liberal forces world-wide, not least, in India. The defeat of his Republican challenger Mitt Romney, on the other hand, didn’t generate a similar solidarity of the despondent. In Britain, the governing Conservative Party, for example, had carefully detached itself from Romney and had shown a marked inclination to be supportive of Obama.

Obama Versus Romney: It’s All Good

29 Oct 2012

Just a month back it had seemed as if the US President, Barack Obama, would have a smooth sailing for a second term at the White House. He was leading in the polls, the Democrats had succeeded in panting his opponent, Mitt Romney, as a gaffe-prone bumbler out of touch with ordinary Americans and the economy was showing signs of recovery. And then something rather unexpected happened.
