50 Things That Will Happen in 2004

December 31st, 2003 - 12:52 am

Ralph Nader will run for President again, but do worse than in 2000.

The Libertarians will nominate an anti-war candidate, and also do worse.

The Democratic Convention will be the most unruly and watchable since 1968.

The Republican Convention will be the most saccharine and unwatchable since 1984.

Dennis Kucinich will propose a Constitutional amendment granting the vote to kitties.

Howard Dean will come in second in Iowa to Dick Gephardt, win by less than 18 points over John Kerry in New Hampshire, and do no better than second in South Carolina. (However, he’s still the most likely nominee.)

John Kerry will drop out of the race after South Carolina.

Teresa Heinz Kerry will file for divorce in December, citing “irreconcilable finances.”

That same month, John Edwards will announce he’s returning to his legal practice come 2005.

Joe Lieberman will stick around through Super Tuesday.

Wesley Clark will be the Democrat’s vice-presidential candidate.

George W. Bush will be reelected with 52-53% of the popular vote, in a low-turnout election.

Hillary Clinton will watch and smile.

This time around, there will be allegations of voting discrepancies in Florida and California.

Turnout will be low because we’ll witness the nastiest presidential campaign in living memory.

Despite (or perhaps because of) the McCain-Feingold campaign reform law, more money than ever will be spent on elections.

The Democrats will keep John Breaux’s old Senate seat

    What about precious metals?
    Melmen predicted that in 2003, gold would rise from $340 to the $400 to $425 range. Today, it is hovering around $417.
    Melmen’s crystal bal says $650 by years end. Global demand (India and China primarily), supply fed by government reserve liquidation, and supply from new sources droppping fact (thanks to the greenies) should press the price up, up, up. Similar pressures should push silver up as well.

    I have a couple to add:

    There’s a schism or major bloodletting in the Democrat party after Bush is reelected. Look for the looney left to be cast aside like the Republicans did to the Pat Buchannan wing in the 90s.

    A major war or coup will involve one or more of the following countries: China, N. Korea, Pakistan, Iran

    Another middle eastern dictatorship will fall, probably Iran, Saud, or Syria

    Big media will hemmorage severely and internet news and blogging will move into the mainstream.

    Make sure you save everyones predictions somewhere…*wink* Happy new year all

    “Colorado will name the Citron martini “The Official State Cocktail.”" — Stephen Green [trying to out-do the 'spiritualists']


    Boodles gin. M&R vermouth, ice and an queen-sized Spanish olive.

    Happy New Year….

    i believe colorado has recently announced that the state drink is a glass of water (lemon, no ice) from a brita pitcher (because everyone here has one but absolutely doesn’t need one), with a pop can full of jim beam and coke hidden in their desk drawer.

    Time for mid-year review?

    For one instance, we haven’t seen as many silly lists as I’d have predicted…

    The political ones can be excused due to the nearly unimaginable rapid plunge by Dean and rise by Kerry.

    However, how you missed it on the Chrysler 300C is beyond me. The thing teh bling.
