I know who I want to win in NH, and I know who I think's going to win, but I'm not predicting that.
What I am predicting, based on the record high turnout (lines out the ' block at Dartmouth College, the bleeding crucible for the YAF, where those miserable little bastards damned near race-baited the great Bill Cole to death; running out of Dem ballots across the state), is the destruction of the Republican party for at least 3 four-year cycles. We're going to expand the majorities in House, Senate, governor's mansions, and state legislatures, we're going to take the White House, and it won't end there:
Indictments, baby. High crimes and misdemeanors. War crimes. You bastards better be lawyering up.
Jan 2009--bring it on.
[ETA: in the comments, Cindy raises the issue of the anger in a post like the above, and how it seems at odds with the previous resolution to "teach peace". See later comments for my response to her fair query, but see below for further illumination for why I think that anger might be there--not just for me but for many others. This is from a private exchange with another correspondent:
I think the rage in the electorate is going to be so great, and the Democratic wave so big, and the magnitude of the high crimes and misdemeanors revealed so appalling, that the House and Senate leadership will be forced to take action. I also think that Pelosi and Reid will be out at leadership; I think Waxman and Dodd (Feingold and Webb and Murtha too) will have much more sway. I also think the FBI is going to go after the CIA and NSA involvement, as payback; that payback is already starting.Takeaway point: I think that the vast majority of the electorate have no idea of the breadth, severity, and horror of the crimes this administration has committed.
