“The Race That Stops A Nation”

English: Oval Office ceiling medallion. França...

It’s funny what people prioritize in different parts of the world.  The first Tuesday in November is a big day for both Aussies and Americans alike.  The build-up is incredible; the hype, extreme; the advertisements, outrageous.  But here, everyone is casting their bets, gathering together at pubs, and getting dolled up in big hats and fancy attire all for a horse race.  In America, people are gathering at the polls to cast their vote in a critical election as two candidates race for that presidential seat in the Oval Office.  If only a winner in the latter race could be determined by horse and jockey.
