A Reminder Regarding Political Prognostications
Because everyone, including me, has thoughts about what last night’s elections means for the 2010 vote ten months from now:
Ten months ago, everyone assumed the GOP was doomed for several political cycles.
Ten months before that, there was still a chance Hillary Clinton would have been the next president of the United States, and no one outside of Alaska had heard of Sarah Palin.
Which is to say that a lot can happen in ten months. No one should get cocky, no one should feel doomed, and no one should be under the impression that any prediction that make now will have any relation to what happens in November. The only prediction I do feel confident in making is: the next ten months should be interesting.
