My Election Predictions for 2008

That's 353 electoral votes for Barack Obama. Try as I might I couldn't stretch his lead any larger than that for a humiliating landslide. Apparently there's nothing more vengeful than a bitter Republican.

While I'm prognosticating I'll go out on a limb and predict that Obama also wins the popular vote (duh) and that the Democrats gain 8 seats in the Senate and 29 in the House.

So what will this mean? Does it mean that President Barack Obama and the Democrats will claim a political mandate to enact their liberal ("socialist") agenda the way President Bush claimed his mandate in 2004? Remember this statement?
"I earned capital in this campaign, political capital, and now I intend to spend it," Bush told reporters. "It is my style."
Whether you remember the comment or not I'm certain you're familiar with the results.

No matter how the next four years turn out there's one thing I'm fairly certain of - Barack Obama will govern with a completely different style.

Here's wishing him - and us - the very best.
