Bold Predictions After Iowa

Mike Huckabee is going to raise a bunch of money, and he showed the negative ad anyway after all that hoopla.

Hillary  Clinton is going to completely change her strategy, focusing on younger voters. Maybe she will realize that Barack Obama had young voters and the undecided cast their vote into this camp.

Rudy Guiliani is going to keep on being Rudy Guiliani.

Fred Thompson might take a few more naps.

John McCain is going to be paying attention.

Mitt Romney is going to go very, very negative. Against Mike Huckabee.

I will say I find this story very interesting about younger voters and who they like on the Republican ticket. Obama was not a surprise.

And neither was Ron Paul, however, he didn’t win it tonight,  he came in ahead of Guiliani according to this report.

And now the punditry begins.

    I turned down a Security Clearance for Satellite Weapons Targeting during President Clinton’s Administration. Knowing that there was a war on the way, I felt that I did not want blood on my hands. After meeting with retired Pentagon Nuclear Intelligence Officers since 2001, I know that the Replublicans led us to war in the Middle East because they were baiting and waiting for decades. I am voting for Senator Clinton because she knows the stakes for the security of our country are higher than Obama can imagine. Please, for the sake of Our Country: Wake UP AMERICA and smell the deception of those who want to entrap us in our own blind spots, those who will abuse our good will and desire to free our selves from past mistakes like slavery. Please vote for the Woman who has her eye on the ball. Take Bhutto’s assassination, Senator Clinton knows that leadership is placing her life at stake. Obama is in his head thinking that he knows things about things he does not even imagine is real.

    That’s special, anon. Real special.

    I sent $100 to my candidate tonight. I’m sending $50/wk. until they win or drop out.

    Mike Huckabee is going to raise a bunch of money

    I file this under the “Fred Thompson will be the unquestioned nominee.” It sounds good at the time, but is only a week or so from its expiration date.

    I still like Dennis. So what if I’m the last person to vote for him.

    At least for tonight I am able to convince myself that I might get to pull the lever for an Obama/Edwards ticket in November. Man that would feel good.

    My prediction as of 2 weeks ago? – Romney/McCain and Obama/Edwards with O/E squeaking by in the end. I don’t think Clinton (too many negatives) or Guliani (too much baggage) will finish, Huckabee will fade (not presidential and too much religious stuff for a general election), and Thompson just isn’t interested.

    Bold indeed. 😉
    Can’t let you have all the fun. These are off the cuff and for fun, I never make wild predictions early. I predicted Hillary would lose the Iowa caucus (proof is at Cannabis Cove). But that was a well researched and developed prediction.

    Just for shits and giggles….

    Hillary will go crazy spending. Ads, ads ads… The true power freaks always panic when defeat is eminent. She will continue to say and do the wrong things and more dirt will flow out about her, Bill and their staff.

    Barack Obama is a novelty. Popular with youth that have no understanding of the value of experience. Nor the gravity of some of the poor decisions Mr. Obama has made as a Senator. He’s made plenty of good ones, just the bad ones were really bad.
    He will be in it to the primary and I’m happy to see him do well even if it will be short lived.

    John Edwards, being so out moneyed and getting absolutely no hype from the media, managed to come out second and in front of the “inevitable nominee” and make himself the story. He will rake in the money and get bigger and better.

    I predict Republicans will continue to suck regardless of which Turkey they stuff for the feast.
