Wouldn't it be fun to watch the Clinton political machine roll over the Obama political machine and both be left smoldering in the ashes in the aftermath?
When it comes to Bubba versus Obama, I'd put my money on Bubba. Too many of Obama's early advice came from Clinton and the tenacles of their machine still are around inside the Obama cadre.

The fun part would be the Donks trying to rig 2012 like they did in 2008 when they split away half of Hillary's votes in Michigan and Florida, and handed them to the same Kenyan who wasn't even on the ballot in those states. It just isn't possible or believable that they even KNOW how to run an honest election.

I predict Bert will turn "Pants Free Fridays" into a national weekly holiday.
Wait, it's already not?  I guess that explains the weird looks I get each week...

I predict a lot of crow will be eaten during 2013.  So much that I am going to stock up on the stuff.  I'll probably eat some, too, but anybody that thinks the TEA Party is going to take the House, the Senate, and the White House is going to be GORGING on it.

Please expand on your ideas, like who do you think will win, or lose...badly?

I don't know.  I hope the Republicans find a more credible candidate than someone like Palin, though.  I think the TEA Party has had some positive influence, but it is not, as it presently exists, capable of taking the House, the Senate, OR the White House, let alone all three.  It's too shallow, too "black and white" if you will.  And I doubt your, or anybody else's, crystal ball is any better than mine.  But we'll see. You've put it in black and white and promised to hang on to it, and I believe you will.  I might not still be posting here, but somebody will be I feel sure.

I don't think I said the Tea party will capture all three houses, but rather the GOP will.
If I did, that was not what I meant.

That one I can buy into.  Don't need a crystal ball for that.  Once again you and I have agreed on something!  Bring on the grapefruit juice!

I wondered if you meant it when you said "we" would take all that and "we" means the TEA party. 

You might be right about the GOP taking all three, but I wouldn't bet that way if it was me.  I would bet two out of the three at best. Which two, I dunno.  They already have the House, but it's not like most people are happy with things.  When they're unhappy, they want CHANGE.  Change would be pubs take the Senate and White House and dims take the House. 

But my prediction is the dims will have at least one of the three.  Which I think is good.  George Will said it best: "Gridlock is not an American problem.  It is an American achievement.  Of the 6 billion people (or whatever it was when he said it) on this planet, at least 5.5 billion would be better off if they lived in countries with governments subject to such gridlock."

And I see it being squeezed.  I'm a real health nut.  When I smoked a pipe, I insisted on organically grown tobacco, too.   ;)

I partake in cigars and all come from South America, and really don't care if they are grown in cow shit or pig shit, as long as they taste good. :))

A good cigar is a good thing, to be sure.  But pipes, to me, are je ne sais quois of baccer use.  If I live long enough, I'm going to start again.  I still have all my pipes.  I play with them periodically and reminisce about the good old days.   But I wouldn't smoke a cigarette, any kind of cigarette, if you held a gun to my head.  Well, maybe if you held a gun to my head.

I have pipes as well, and partake regularly, but I just love a good cigar, I have my favorites, but $10 a pop isn't for everyday use, so I burn the cheaper ones and when I get tired of them, out comes the pipe but a 15 minute burn doesn't compare to an hour and a half bur on a Monte Christo or a PDR, one of my weaknesses.
Ahhhh sigh, I think I'll burn one now. :)
