(Aug. 30) -- Continuing a tradition almost as reliable as the winter season itself, the "Farmers' Almanac" revealed its annual long-term weather forecast Monday, this year predicting an overall "kinder and gentler" season for the contiguous United States.
For the eastern third of the country (New England down to Florida and as far west as the Mississippi River), forecasters predict "much colder-than-normal winter temperatures" -- but generally not as frigid as conditions felt last winter, which saw 49 states experience snowfall. New England in particular should be sure to bundle up, as ...

Moving ahead with a trial-like proceeding in Rep. Charles Rangel's ethics case is the "right course" for Congress, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said Friday. Gibbs also predicted Democrats would retain control of the U.S. House, despite political setbacks and the weak economy. ...

President Obama is "guaranteed" to win re-election in 2012, according to Allan Lichtman, a professor at American University in Washington, D.C. Lichtman's formula predicts the outcome of the popular vote without considering candidate opinion polls, campaign strategies or political events.
Lichtman's system is based on 13 political conditions that he calls "keys." The keys favor the incumbent president's party: When five or fewer of them are false, the incumbent party wins the presidency. If six or more are false, the opposition party wins. In 2007, Lichmann predicted that any Democratic ...

Throw out the polls. All of them. Throw out the ones that show Sen. Barack Obama cruising to a Reaganesque landslide over Sen. John McCain. Throw out the ones that show Sen. McCain making a Trumanesque comeback. Throw out the state polls. Throw out the exit polls, when they are conducted. Throw them all out. The fact is that no pollster truly knows what is going on this election cycle, because this election is unlike any other in the nation's recent history.Never before has there been such a disparity in experience between the two candidates. Sen. John McCain has been in Congress for ...

Here goes:The Giuliani/Romney team wins in a tight squeaker to become the next president over Clinton/Richardson.Oh wait, that was the prediction from a year ago. When it made much more sense. Seriously y'all would never have expected all this coming a million years ago?A senator with no experience who's middle name is Hussein? Joe Biden? Sarah who? McCain? If you'd have told me all that a year ago I would have laughed out loud at you and so here we are.So what's going to happen tomorrow night? Possibly what everyone expects, an Obama victory. Or, just like normal for this election year, the ...

Obama Reaches Voters
Verily, while in repose there came upon mine eyes a darkness. And in its grip my mind was given to see upon the day of choosing, and lo I was able to tell what that day would bring upon us.
It came to pass in the year two thousand and eight, there dwelt upon the land of America a great strife. The peoples of the earth mingled freely in this land, but were sore afraid. They wandered in fear of a recurrence of the great soup times of many years gone. They believed the oceans themselves awaited their fate on the day of choosing, when the tide would know whether to rise or ...

What would prediction folly be without foolish predictions! So here's my 2.5 cents of clairvoyance:
1. People vote. Pretty sure that'll happen. In fact I can boldly predict tomorrow, Tuesday, November 4th people will vote. I'll go further. Some will make the right choice, others a wrong one. But all together, they're be more voices than we seen in a very long time. Nationally, between 65-68% of the voting age population will participate.
2. Someone wins. There will be a winner Election Night.
3. Margins won't matter. Closer than many expect, contests in battleground states will surprise ...
