Other predictions

  • Democrats still hold House & Senate
  • Google 850
  • No Recession (defined as 2 quarters of negative growth)
  • Unemployment still under 5%
  • Credit Crunch no longer an issue.
  • Troop levels in Iraq continue to draw down as situation improves and Iraqi police & army takes over.
  • Democrats take credit for the success in Iraq and hail Betray Us Petraeus as a hero. The MSM doesn't see any irony and willingly report the storyline.
  • Despite having been voted down by Venezuelans, Hugo gets most of the provisions in the referendum (including Presidency for life)
  • Ratings for Congress continue to be lower than the President.
  • Sarkozy has some success in making the French economy more flexible
  • Iran proclaims that it does have a nuclear weapons program; CIA and State Department both attempt to discredit Iranian proclamation.
  • Another Rovian Conspiracy fades away - to be replaced by another team blog (?)
Happy 2008 everyone!!!
