Supertuesday Wild Predictions

I’m going to make some predictions, most probably wrong, and will leave them up no matter how wrong they turn out to be. Go ahead, throw rocks, I’m building a rock garden :)

Democrat:
Hillary Clinton will win enough primaries to be the undisputed victor by the time the coronation… errr, the Democratic Convention. At which time she will announce Obama as her Vice-Presidential running mate, the objective here is to have 16 years of Democratic domination over the Presidency, National Health Insurance paid for by rich people, National Education paid for by rich people, National Paid Everything For The Poor paid for by rich people. At the end of which, there will be no rich people, only poor downtrodden peasants convinced that the Government should provide for all their needs. I’m exaggerating a bit, but that’s basically their goal. When 98% of income tax is collected from the upper 50% of income earners, it does not take a rocket scientist to see the potential of buying votes from the lower income earners with Bread and Circuses.

In the wildly unlikely event that Obama manages to squeeze out enough votes to make the Democratic Convention competitive, or even wins the nomination, there is no way in heck he will pick Clinton as a Veep. The idea of Hillary being one heartbeat away from the presidency would scare the heck out of anybody, particularly when that heartbeat is yours. My wild guess is some East or West coast former governor, or Nebraska’s Kery (the other one, the legitimate war hero), most probably white, and male.

Republican:
John McCain will continue to trounce Mit and wind up with enough votes to assure his position in the Republican Convention. At which point the Press will turn on him like savage badgers and run one long series of hit pieces until November. The Media only loves McCain while he is trashing Republicans, after the Primaries his target will be a Democrat (whoever it is), and they *never* have supported him against a Dem.

If McCain has the sense God gave a blade of grass, he will offer Mit the Veep spot, announce that Rudy is his pick for AG, make peace with Rush Limbaugh… No, I don’t really expect any of that. I really expect McCain to pick another Senator to run as his Veep, probably Brownback, as the race goes down to another defeat. Arrogance your name is McCain. Please prove me wrong.

End Result:
In November, the team of Clinton/Obama, Bill Clinton, the Media, Soros and various socialist groups that have been promised great things will clash with McCain/Romney, who will have by that point have been bled white by six months of bad press. President Hillary will make her legislative agenda priority another Health Care Plan of extreme size and scope, a huge slug of text that promises free health care to all people within the borders of the country paid for by the Evil Rich. This Titanic plan will be about twice the size as they really want, they will compromise with the Republicans to bring it down to just Huge, and the rest of their legislative agenda will follow in much the same way.

Now if you will excuse me, I need to get a shovel and bury some money in the back yard :)

Somebody else who made the point better than I did (but without the wild predictions)

Thank you. "Savage badgers" is a very nice phrase, and I think accurate.

Update: There is *one* way I can see Obama taking Hillary as Veep. If Obama wins a majority of votes in the primary, but Hillary holds enough hostages among the superdelagates to force a bloody and chaotic Convention.

Ok, as of yesterday, Obama has the Delegates to become the Democratic Nominee for the Presidency. But Hillary has announced she is not quitting. I hereby christen her:

Hillary – The Energizer Bunny of Politics

As much as I view this political battle on the Democrat side as kind of a “Jason vs Freddie” movie (i.e. We don’t care who wins, we just want to go see the fight), TH is right, Hillary is staying in the race for something.

Two possibilities: If she’s irrational, this represents a kind of Dr. Strangelove, Go Down With The Bomb strategy where she is going to hang on like some sort of deranged evening guest who just wont leave even after you put out the cat and turn out the lights.

If she’s rational, you have to ask, what is her Goal? If she still thinks she can win the nomination….um… see above. At this point you can think of her as the bank robber holding a gun to the hostage while negotiating with the police for a helicopter and a plane. (Give me X, or the White, Female, Lower-Class Voters get it!) The only three things I can think of is the VP spot (which BHO would have to be nuts to give to her), a Supreme Court nomination (just what we need, the first First Lady to have to testify under oath before Congress as to her faulty memory and conveniently lousy filing skills on the Court) or the Senate Majority Leader position. I think Harry Reid needs to be shopping for a new office space. And he better hurry.

Update: Sept 2008. Two things have happened that I never thought were possible. 1. The Democratic party has turned down the corruption of the Clintons for a new face (not even as veep, I'm really amazed) and 2. McCain has selected a veep that I respect and really like.
