Probably depends on what Americans want to happen. Do they want a president that honors agreements ? do they need one that will get along with the soon to be new Canadian PM Trudeau Jr. ?

I hate to break this to you, but they may not have even heard of him.

I am delighted at the degree of change in the Canada elections. Farewell, Harper! Don't let the door hit ya! Off with you to your lucrative, post-public-office, corporate position.

EDIT: And I hope we will have a president who will try to cooperate with our neighbor's leadership.

I don't hold much hope for the US Congress, however.

You're quite right. Clearly the new US president will have to be someone who can talk intelligently about cartoons.

"Our" president? Sorry, we are not all living in the US of A or even in Canada or even on the southern part of the continent. Unless you consider yours as the president of the world.

Sorry, I forgot that the US of A wasn't the only constitutional democracy in the world currently
involved in an interesting election cycle to find a new president, and including at least one
really poor choice (cartoon is an appropriate word). Oh, we are.

Guatemala just elected a comedian with zero political experience to be president
Quote:
Before the campaign, Morales was well-known as a television comedian. In his most famous political sketch, he played a Guatemalan cowboy who — irony alert — becomes the country's president.

Morales parlayed his high name recognition to become a public face of the anti-corruption protests, using social media and other platforms favored by the demonstrators to ally himself with the cause.
