Does Michael Gove Stand a Chance to Become PM? (John Heelan, UK, 06/01/19 1:00 am)

JE wrote on 31 May: "Michael Gove is marketing himself as the 'unity candidate' for leadership of the Conservatives. We don't know much about him in the US. John, do you believe Gove has a chance of outmaneuvering Johnson?"

Possibly, even given an op-ed by his wife (Sarah Vine or Vain, as some call her), in the Daily Mail a day or so ago that revealed Gove had to take his driving test seven times and still cannot load the dishwasher--these are hardly recommendations to lead the Tories or become the next PM.

However, Johnson and Gove clashed during the 2016 leadership contest after the Environment Secretary withdrew his support for the former London Mayor to run for the top job himself.

The spectacular falling out between the two former allies helped destroy both men's chances to lead their party at the time.

The leadership contest is becoming bitter as the contestants snipe at each other in the media. Despite appearing to be a buffoon, Bojo has some smarts, especially for political infighting. However, being called a "friend" by the Trumpster might prove a "kiss of death" for Bojo's ambitions when added to his zippergate reputation. As always in these political squabbles, the promised sticks and carrots (including promises of peerages and knighthoods) become the true movers and shakers.

JE comments:  I pride myself with my driving skills--but Aldona would also argue that I can't load a dishwasher.  She stuffs three times the dishes in one go.

Does a Trump endorsement help any political candidate outside the US?
