A Few Predictions

Several months ago, I congratulated Al Gore for winning the Nobel prize.
This was only noteworthy because at the time, Al Gore had not yet won the Nobel prize. The winner wouldn't be announced for another week.

Since that worked out well and got this site its first attention, I thought I would lay a few other predictions out for all the world to see. I'll follow up on these shortly before George W. Bush leaves office.

1. Congratulations to Barack Obama for not selecting The Clintons for Vice President. Obama realizes he needs someone to help him carry some swing states, and those two can't do it.

2. Congratulations John McCain, President of The United States of America.

3. This one is a "pivot". The crystal ball is cloudy. But I think one of these two things will happen: We will capture Osama bin Laden, possibly in Iraq, shortly before the election. This will give everyone some warm and fuzzy feelings about our military adventure over there. OR.... Osama bin Laden will release a very scary video shortly before the election, scaring the crap out of everybody and putting John McCain in a better position to live in the White House.
Either of these scenarios will benefit Republicans.

4. The Dallas Cowboys will not win a playoff game this year.

5. Fuel prices are going to keep going up. So shortly before leaving office, George W. Bush will move to open ANWR and possibly more areas in the Pacific and Atlantic to oil rigs. No one in the house or senate will have the cajones to oppose it. Fuel prices will go down shortly afterwards.

I still think Hillary will prevail to become the first lady (and first First Lady ;) to ever run as the Dem choice for Prez.
I think oil is going to level off in its cost per barrel, and even drop significantly over the next year - causing an economic resurgence that'll offset the consumer and housing crises we're faced with.
Cheers, Tom

Thanks again for the link love.

Everyone else,

Ouch. Harsh...
No playoff wins for the Cowboys? That's a mighty bold statement.

If someone flipped a coin eleven times, and it came up "heads" eleven consecutive times, which way would you bet for flip number twelve?
