I am starting this thread, because I, occasionally, see statements to the effect that something is obvious in the future.
For example, "Almost ANYONE with a grain of common fiduciary sense saw this coming, yet the so-called "sophisticated" financiers and hedge managers continued to run after more profit, no matter how many small investors would lose everything."
The above was taken from the Mortgage Crisis thread. It is only an example.
I would like people who read this site to take their best stab at what is going to happen in the future. Then we can go back see how accurate they were.
I will start it off (prediction # 1):
1. If Hillary Clinton is elected president, she will continue major troop involvement in Iraq, Her policy will not be very different than Bush's policy...she will adjust according to conditions on the ground (both military and political). I further predict that she will re-start the draft, especially if she wins a second term.
Anybody else want to step up to the plate?
