Claire Has Big Decisions to Make
25 June 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Will Claire decide to be the last Underwood standing? If I were a member of the citizenry where this is playing out, I would wonder what the hell is happening to our world. Even with the Trump administration, things are being scrutinized every day. In the fictional world, who's actually running the country? There have to be hard choices to make for an interim (even with a diminishing windbag husband) that would take up her day. Most of the activities of these people are so self serving and directed at the upcoming vote, we would be so vulnerable. Meanwhile, certain things are happening. Doug continues to live on a fault line bigger than San Andreas. The Washington newspaper editor is following up on leads fed to him by an ambitious reporter he fired. One thing that bothers me. The generals and the military advisers seem to be so frightened of the Underwoods. Obviously, Claire is the chief executive, but some of these guys seem to be so weak. They also seem to have a collective Achilles heel that can be exploited over and over. This seems true of the entire Congress and Senate.
