Bush has but 18 months to go, as good a time as any to make some predictions about what will happen, and not happen, before he is replaced by President Giuliani (and the current times subsequently become known as the ‘Golden Age of American Politics’).  What gives for the last 18 months?:

  1. The United States won’t attack Iran (or any other place of significance).

  2. Bush and Cheney will keep up their weekly assault on the American Constitution, but, despite much bloviating from the Democrats and their blogging fellow travellers, neither will come even close to impeachment.  It is not impossible that Cheney resigns for ‘health reasons’.

  3. There won’t be any domestic terrorist attack on the United States.  The idea that one would be necessary gives the American political system way too much credit, as it will go along with what Bush wants with or without another attack.

  4. The Democrats will continue to wiggle around to try to fool Americans into believing that they want American troops out of Iraq.  Americans won’t be fooled. 

  5. On the day Bush leaves office, there will still be more than 100,000 American troops in Iraq.

  6. The next American elections will be rife with vote fraud, both the old kinds (which won’t have been stopped), and whatever new kinds Rove cooks up.

  7. Bush will pardon Scooter.
