Cri du coeur …

 Paul Davis On Crime: Our Presidential Candidates Are Bond Villains.

Well, the element of caricature is surely there. There is much of Jonathan Swift in Ian Fleming: types, but types very specifically and precisely drawn; a sense of humor, warped, but genuine; the uncanny sense that these are like people we know. And the American political scene has certainly turned itself into a parody of Fleming's government agencies.
I am also not entirely sure that Goldfinger did not in fact have Presidential potential.
