New Hampshire Predictions

Like I said earlier, predictions only count if you make them BEFORE the events take place (which is one reason why the book of Isaiah is so very cool, but I digress). So here's my 2 cents on New Hampshire: Obama beats Hillary again and sails out to a big lead on the Democrat side (I think many, many Dems really are looking for an excuse to favor him over her, and Iowa should be just what the doctor ordered). And McCain edges Romney by a bit on the Republican side, with Fred Thompson beating Huckabee, who falls back to also-ran status in the more secular Granite State.

I'm still hoping for Fred to catch fire, but at this writing (and I reserve the right to revise my opinions as any pundit should), I'm seeing Romney vs. Obama, with Obama (and running mate Joe Biden) winning in a close one. And then for the next 40 years I'll get to explain to my students how I managed to miss my opportunity to vote for the first black president, not because of race, but because of the war and judges.

One more thing, and I shudder to think of it. If Obama does win the nomination, prepare for a media love-fest the likes of which has never been seen before. Many people, especially on the left, will have tons of hopes and dreams riding on this candidate of change who represents everything young, new, and of course, transcendent of race. But if he somehow goes on to lose, for whatever reason--war, judges, abortion, taxes, lack of experience, or just plain bad electoral math--we'll be subject to a wailing and gnashing of teeth of Biblical proportions. Expect the folks at Daily Kos, Huffington Post, and every other lefty blog site to tell us all how evil a racist country we are if we fail to fall to our knees and crown this 1-term senator as messiah.

Of course, I could be wrong. About all of the above. That's the fun thing about blogging. Especially when nobody reads it!

Fred would be good if he shows up.
He just acts like he in it because some rich guys talked him into it...
Oh and as for what I said in the other comments: As the Church Lady says.... "oh never mind....some of it anyways"........
Looking forward to your take on tomorrow...

I read it. And I actually understood this one.

I think that if Obama gets the whole Democratic nomination, he will be the president. However, if Hilary is the leading lady, there may be a chance for the Republican nominee. I wouldn't have thought that several months ago, but I think she is not as popular as she thought.

You know I read your blog, although I probably don't count. If the number of comments is 0, it really should say -1 because I haven't thought of anything to say yet.

Yes, Pete, Tommy is "lurking." I'd like to talk him into getting his own blog, but as he is not one for comment writing, maybe not.
