MY PRESIDENTIAL PREDICTION

Okay, here's a secret that only my parents and my husband know.

Ever since I was a little girl I've been fascinated with the presidential elections. I very much enjoy watching "presidential ramblings" and even as a child I loved listening to adults debate the presidential elections and issues. It just interests me. I don't have any big time hot topics that get in the way of my thoughts about politics so my emotions are pretty much out of the way in this arena.

So what has that allowed me to do in elections past?

I have correctly predicted who will be elected for president a year or better before the elections.
From telling my parents that Reagan will win, to telling my husband that Bush will win, it's been a snap.

So, as crazy as this is, I'm going on record right now. Let's test out my gauge for this crazy, mixed up election. This one is a doozey and I'm a little bit on edge because none of the others have felt this crazy but I think I've got it.
Just so you know, there are no visions or anything remotely psychic or scary like that. LOL
This is just my feeling of the emotions in the air.
Here we go...

1. I'm probably voting for Ron Paul in January, but since he won't win, that won't be who I'll vote for in November. LOL

2. I think Obama has no shot to make it to the presidency but may very well beat Hillary on the Democratic ticket.

3. I think there will be a Republican voted in again next year.
4. I'll go a step farther and say that Huckabee will be our next president.
That's my prediction.
Oh, this is crazy to do publicly! LOL
Anybody else got a prediction? Are there any others who've got the knack for this sort of thing? If so, blog away and let me know! I love doing this!!
Do me a favor?
I've never been wrong when I predict the presidency. So, lest I forget, please remind me of my answer if I'm wrong. I'll publicly admit my first failed prediction on this blog and take the teasing as necessary. :-)

ok- got ya down 1 for Huckabee. I do think he is interesting. Consistent.. I have to look at his policies some more. I think i'm actually a registered DEM! I did that back in college and never changed it. I tried to check online last night at SOS but it was 'down.' hmm...

it would be an act of God if he was president that is for sure!

Hmmm....I'm not going to make any predictions as of yet because frankly, I must admit I haven't really paid attention to the issues. I usually wait until it gets a little closer because I really get quite worked up at the opposing team. Right now....I pray to God that Hilary doesn't get in. She already had her term, in my opinion, even if the American people voted Mr. in....she really was the one running the show.

I'll be watching to see if your prediction is right.

If Hillary makes it, I'm giving up predicting. That will mean my entire radar is not only broken but smashed, blended and thrown into molten lava! LOL

You're doing great so far. What about McCain?

dreadnought,

I suppose he's off my radar because I've had no feeling either way about him.

My knee jerk reaction to hearing his name is that he's not "something new." I feel that he's out of the question in the 2008 political/social atmosphere. He's "old politics" if you will.
Unless he pulls a new rabbit from a new hat, quickly, he's not even in contention for vice president.

If Huckabee runs with Ron Paul he will have evangelicals, Independents, those who fear a female presidency and bigots (never underestimate the power of bigotry in this world) in his corner. My feeling is; and I realize this is a stretch; Huckabee would win by a landslide, most every state, except California. I can easily imagine the voting maps looking like the vote when gay marriage was voted down.

I happened upon your blog today. Your family and life seem very nice.
One thing you should know is that as a middle class family, the Republicans do not have your best interests at heart. Bush has given the very wealthy a 20% tax cut while he's been in office. Did you get a 20% tax cut? Check your tax returns. What could you have done with that money? I just feel it's time that we look past religion, and start looking at what these men and women stand for.
You should be voting Democrat. Dems brought you Social Security, clean air and water, safe roads, and lots of other things we take for granted. Most of all, Dems care about you economically. Bush said it all when he told an extremely wealthy gathering of people, "you are my base."
Just think it over. Do some research..Google "bush tax cuts." Thank you for your consideration.

Hi Anonymous,

I'm not a strict Republican. I'm not one to vote for a person only because they are a Christian.

I don't care about tax cuts because
I care about paying money for things that matter to me. It takes money to run a country.

I do not know where Hillary plans to get the funds to pay for universal health care and universal pre-K but it will take money to fund those things.

I know it is being called a one issue decision maker but abortion is number one on my list. First the candidate must be pro-life, then I look at the rest of their issues.

Until a democrat runs as a pro-life advocate it seems we, who believe it's murder to end a human life no matter what stage of development the human is in, are doomed to vote our conscience on the matter of life and death and think of finances secondary.
