What Will The 2008 Presidential Election Look Like?

What the heck, let's make some early prognostications here today.

Herewith, the Curmudgeon's crystal ball as to the 2008 Presidential race (hey, we called the American Idol final four correctly).

1. Al Gore will not enter the race.

2. Fred Thompson and Newt Gingrich will enter the GOP race. Thompson will flop; Gingrich will be a real factor.

3. The Dems will nominate either Hillary, Obama or Richardson.

4. The Repubs will not nominate Guiliani. We still can't say who they will nominate.

5. Bloomberg will run as a well-financed independent, perhaps with Hagel as his VP nominee, but he'd be better off getting a moderate Dem. on the ticket.

6. A fairly popular right wing Republican will run as an independent.

7. A "Green" party will field a credible candidate.

8. The new President will win with a plurality, under 45% of the vote. (Maybe closer to 40%.)

Remember, you heard it here first.
