America tcha cam
The closest professional franchises are in Minneapolis, which is a three-and-a-half-hour drive and seemingly a world away from Fargo, the most magical new capital of the college football universe.This is what magic looks like: Since 2011, North Dakota State has won five straight national titles at the FCS level and compiled a record of 75-5.David Cameron would have welcomed company during the six-course European summit dinners where he found himself sandwiched between Sarkozy, Merkel and the lobster thermidor.Sam, of course, would have been admitted instantly to the First Wives’ Club.“They made a big deal in Philadelphia that he shot a deer. ’”By 10 a.m., under a blue sky and with the temperature in the 60s, the parking lots were perfumed with the smell of deer sausage and bison burgers.The cold beer never ran dry.“I grew up a North Dakota State fan because there is a mystique here that is hard to define,” said Sean Fredricks, who played linebacker for the Bison from 1993 to ’97, as he stood close to several former players under a tent in the parking lot.The Bond Street stationers would have been very accommodating, conscious of her special circumstances.(Think of the millions she’s worth in publicity alone.) But Samantha Gwendoline Sheffield Cameron doesn’t go in for special pleading – and nor does she want to be part of her husband’s political machinery.
She had plenty of excuses: she was pregnant when she entered No 10 and, once she’d had baby Florence, an official trip would have required the kind of strategic planning needed to regain the Falklands. As “creative consultant” at Smythson – a position for which she cut short her maternity leave to return to – she couldn’t be expected to reschedule a management conference just to suit Angela Merkel, or drop out of its AGM because of the Chinese.The British public has grown to like this laid-back executive – and admire the political spouse who supports her husband’s work without intruding in his world.She would never hold a weepy press conference to claim she’d been hard done-by.Sam Cam has prudently waited for her feet to be firmly on the ground before setting off for distant lands.Now, with perfect timing, she is ready to step on to the world stage.
Clever Samantha Cameron – she knows how to bide her time.
