    Let's see who's good at predicting stuff. Post your prognostications on political developments or about anything that hasn't happened yet. Then we'll find out what happens.

    This is only an exhibition, not a competition. Please, no wagering.

        I can't figure any of this stuff out yet other than after the consolidation of the Democrat candidates it's going to come down to either Bernie against Buttguy or Bloomberg. If it's Bernie in the general Trump wins. If it's either of the other guys it's a toss up.

        That would be a tough ticket for Trump.

        The toughest, as I see it right now. But not tough enough, assuming continued economic stability and barring unforeseen developments.

          Sanders is going to win I believe and if he does Trump wins going away.

          I predict Trask will win the Heisman on the way to an undefeated National Championship season; and Donkey is forced to hang a life-sized Fathead poster of Trask in every room of his house by way of personal penance in order to continue posting on this site. In the spirit of forgiveness, Chatter members will pay for the Fatheads. No one will ever mention their presence in his household; it will be unwritten code to never mention the subject unless we're 1) at a Chatter meetup or 2) piss-drunk and posting. For obvious reasons, alcoholica is the only one allowed to freely mention the posters at all hours of the day since we all assume him to be hammered 24/7.

          Thus It Is Written.

            I predict Sanders gets hosed by the DNC again but this time instead of sucking it up he goes third party, with Tulsi Gabbard.

              That is bold but I predict that it won't end up looking like a crazy prediction in retrospect.

                  I think you might be right and that is certainly an interesting pick. Klobuchar is certainly gaining. Buttigieg is going to get beat bad in South Carolina and other states with large black minorities. He won't win the nomination but would be a good VP candidate. In debates Trump could shoot zingers at Hilary Clinton and people loved seeing her get her comeuppance because she was so unlikable. Klobuchar is way more likable so Trump may come off looking more like a bully in a debate with her.

                  I think Trump will win anyway. I really like Mike Pence as a person but sometimes I wish Trump had a more dynamic personality to run with him on the ticket. I am thinking someone like Rand Paul or Nikki Haley whom I'm not a big fan of but I know she is very likable by a lot of people and is a winner. But Trump is really loyal to Pence maybe because quiet Mike Pence stays so much in the background and lets Trump get all the attention.

                    I do not know. Not sure it matters. Trumps beats them all. They have gone too far left and it’s too much party before country.

                    I sit and laugh at Sanders saying Trump sent jobs to China and Mexico. Meanwhile the idiots in the world nod in agreement. Then my heart sinks.

                    The future is not bright for America. There are too many sheep. We are too soft. We don’t know adversity except not having the the ability to watch 3 different shows at the same time.

                    But back to predictions, yes the MN Senator will be the nominee when they realize the must be center left. Unfortunately they will not be able to sell Trump is the most dangerous president for this long.

                      Joe Biden does not win a single primary and for reference:
                      Joe Biden has never finished higher than 4th in any primary or caucus in 32 years of running for president

                        Maybe a brokered convention with Obama becoming involved and endorsing someone from the past, possibly Kerry. Really the water won't clear until after Super Tuesday.

                          Pretty much my reasoning also. Klobuchar has the best sense of humor of any of the DNC candidates and that, above all else, is what you need in order to go head to head with Trump.

                          I imagine that the Dems like the idea of a Buttigieg-Pence VP debate, because they think Pence will come off as judgmental of all the gayness. Remember, lefties project their own hateful tendencies onto everyone else. They wrongly assume that like themselves, those of us on the Right hate our political adversaries or people whose lifestyles we wind objectionable (or laughable).

                          I PREDICT that Pence will not be judgmental of Buttigieg at all; just the opposite, in fact. When they debate, it is Mayor Pete who come across as intolerant of Pence and people like him, instead of the other way around. His attempts to paint Pence as a bigot will fall flat, and even backfire.

                          I also predict that ad videos like the one embedded in this Tweet by Trump Campaign Manager Brad Pascale will be irresistible appeals to Trump's base constituency, "Strong Americans," who will propel him to victory over any opponent. Watch this:

                            I predict that unless you can pay for Fatheads with Oxbucks, this will never happen.

                            I'm OK with your other predictions.

                            Wait...KERRY?? You think they'll try to dig that old cadaver up and prop him up on stage? Against Trump??
