“If there are any little girls out there who stayed up late to watch, let me just say, I may become the first woman president, but one of you is next,” Hillary Clinton said triumphantly in Philadelphia. With “the woman effect,” “she makes history,” comments the Financial Times. “Madam Presidential Candidate,” expresses Le Devoir of Montréal in a catchphrase. “Clinton Captures [Historic] Nomination,” adds the Washington Post. For its part RTL Belgium, equally seized by this image of the candidate surrounded by young girls, says that she “formally accepted her nomination Thursday night in closing the Democratic Convention, before once again leaving [on the campaign trail] the next day with her running mate Tim Kaine, [hoping] to [win with] him on Nov. 8 against Republican Donald Trump.”

In the aftermath, the Wall Street Journal engages in a very scholarly analysis of the present forces, to conclude that in reality, although Trump is currently slightly ahead of his rival in the latest polls, the game remains very open, as animated graphics in Echos show. But many people still worry. As Le Point exemplifies, a “part-time clown and full-time sociopath will become our next president.”

The assertion is signed [by] Michael Moore, activist director and strong supporter of Bernie Sanders, notable author of Bowling for Columbine, who, on his blog, detailed the “five reasons why Trump will win.” He adds, “Never in my life have I wanted to be proven wrong more than I do right now.” So, as an echo of his comments, “the latest polls indicate that the billionaire is catching up” to his Democratic rival, whose husband, according to USA Today, delivered “an ode” in Philadelphia, in which he became her “best friend” again, quips BBC. Will this be sufficient? Nothing is less certain. One opinion displayed in the Los Angeles Times foretells “a coup similar to the one that just occurred in Turkey, if Trump reaches the White House." Conclusion: “Voters must stop him before the military has to.”

At the moment, this changes nothing in business and in current debates. Whatever the final result, according to the site Japan Today, she “should be in jail” because of the deletion of her secretary of state emails and [he] “also menaces the existence of America.” “What is not there [are] the marginal opinions” that reveal “the bitter political divide of the nation.” Which primarily means that on Nov. 9, “tens of millions of Americans will wake up realizing that someone that they hate will be the 45th president of the United States.”

In this context, we can add to the worried groups Radio France International, who recalls that “the Latin American voters will be 27 million [people] in the presidential election … They represent 12% of the total electorate, a very-prized minority … by the White House hopefuls, and notably in three key states of the United States, the famous swing states: Florida, Colorado, and Nevada. Their voters are deemed indecisive and the Hispanic community, strongly represented, can sway the balance. But it moves slightly to the polls.”

In short, this will be close, this combat of the disliked! Le Monde already wrote at the beginning of June, “Of the clash [to come], we know only two things. The first is that it will not have any [trace] of an academic debate on the merits of one proposition [compared to] another. Donald Trump has, since the start, set the tone of the 2016 political season: personal insult, racist remarks, physical threats, outright lies, packaged together in the name of refusing a political correctness that we will eventually regret, and which would be that of the 'elites.' The second is that rarely, since 1945, have two candidates in the presidential election had popularity ratings as low. Neither Hillary Clinton nor Donald Trump are well-liked candidates.”

Moreover, “both are weak candidates. Considered manipulative and insincere, Hillary Clinton is the epitome of a political elite close to financial circles, exactly what the voters reject. Vulgar, willingly demagogic, and without the slightest political experience, Donald Trump is carried by male voters, rather poor, and mainly, if not exclusively, white, in contrast to the demographic evolution of the country." However, according to the French daily, Hillary Clinton “deserves her victory.”

Good, and why? Because [of] “the battle for female access to the highest responsibilities, she has led since her youth. No one can contest an exemplary militant past. She has a passion for public affairs. An extremely competent technocrat, she has acquired the patience and the science of compromise, which are, in politics, the way of reform. Constantly subjected to a merciless media pressure since the election of Bill Clinton to the presidency (1992-2000), she displayed an unparalleled tenacity. This was forged in adversity: She takes [the media’s questions] and knows how to answer with dignity.”

This is exactly what Bill Clinton wanted to prove during his speech at the Democratic Convention, so that the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung settled for this cryptic title: “Bill’s Hillary.” La Stampa of Turin also extensively evoked this “dynasty,” that it summarized [with], “power and love to the American.” As a television series? “Oval Office, season 3, episode 19 – the rebound effect obtained by Donald upon leaving the Cleveland convention” will this be the end “for Hillary?” “From there, we will watch a fight with almost equal weapons...” concluded the Journal du Dimanche.
