Biden. Incumbents have a significant advantage. It not Biden then DeSatan provided he doesn't trip over twitter.
I not lawyer/teacher/CPA.
You've been arrested? Law Society of Singapore can provide referrals.
You want an International School job? School website or http://www.ISS.edu
Your rugrat needs a School? Avoid for profit schools
You need Tax advice? Ask a CPA
You ran away without doing NS? Shame on you!

But on the topic of the American election, it better be Biden. Don't even get me started on DeSantis. What an idiot.

The Ridout issue is going to delay the election while they try to whitewash what appears to be a rather cozy relationship affecting their ministers...

I wouldn’t count Trump out.

I’d love to see Tim Scott win it, that would get the Dems to show their true colors. Biden would probably be the first to tell him he ain’t black.

wrt local election, too early to say til we know who's running. It will be my first time voting so I hope it is contested.

Right. It'll be hard for him to govern from jail.

In all honesty, I'm not sure why the criteria for eligibility is so stringent. I would've liked to see Tommy Koh qualify.

As of today, we've got:

Tharman S
George Goh

And a surprise mystery hopeful, some guy named Teo En Ming. Never heard of him, so I'm doubtful he'll qualify. As for George, he seems nice, and it would certainly be good to have a president with no ties to the ruling party, but his religiosity worries me.

Why does it worry you?
