Predictions (Please, no Wagering)

As Letterman often says: This is an exhibition, not a competition. Please: no wagering.

So as to allow the possibility of ridicule, I will enter my own predictions about tomorrow night (which is getting trickier by the minute).

*deep breath*

1. Dean in a squeaker.
2. Kerry in a close second
3. Edwards laps St. Joseph and the General to come in third.
4. Lieberman's "Joe-mentum" gets him 4th, which, sadly, will be seen as a win.
5. Clark's slide, fueled by his inability to answer a question, continues. He will soldier-forth to February 3rd anyway.
6. Kucinich
7. Sharpton

(The only picks I feel solid on are 3, and definitely 6 & 7!)

UPDATE: I explain my reasoning, such as it is, here.

Agh...Deano in first!?

I shall move to Canada! As soon as Alec Baldwin does!!!

Brave man, art thou Steven...For myself, I'll still have a case of the a** should the Duck come in 2nd.

I figure it I am going to go out on a limb, might as well go all the way and play the trend!

I dunno, Prof. Taylor, those line graphs may have cost Kucinich a few votes!

If I just read Dean's latest "the Iraqi's are not really better off" stuff correctly, then it looks like the melt-down continues for him, after all.

I now put forward a new theory: He's being paid to throw the nomination. I have no other explanation (not involving the Illuminati, massive drugs, or orbiting mind control lasers) that can explain his bnehavior and dive from presumptive front-runner to just some angry nut who may well come in behind Clar^H^H^H^H Sharpton.

I still think that the man is, shall we say, a bit off on Iraq, but all he needs is a few percentage points of like-minded folks and the front-runner storyline gets re-written again.

Of course, as noted today, I am not going to defend my predictions the way I did for Iowa, as the whole thing has a toss-up feel right now.
