Narcissism - Good or Bad for Candidates?

As the election year of 2016 kicks off, it is a good time to reflect on how we will vote.  Not only are issues important but also the character of a candidate and how they approach decisions.  Here's an interesting article that highlights how to approach the polling box:

  • Do applaud apologies.
  • Don't applaud evasiveness.
  • Do applaud curiosity.

POLITICAL WINE: WHO IS HILLARY CLINTON?

We are months away from our Democrat Global Primary where YOU get to cast your vote for the person who will be our Democrat presidential candidate in 2016.  To support Americans living on the Riviera in making an informed vote in our local Democrat Global Primary, join the DAF - Riviera's Political Wines (first Wednesdays) to engage in an in-depth analysis of each candidate.  Through a random selection, each month will focus on a different candidate and their viewpoints on current political issues, particularly those directly impacting Americans living abroad.

Please join us at our new location!

Parking: Palais de la Méditerranée or Grimaldi
