Bold Predictions...

...should probably be written in pencil...

No sooner had the inevitability of Romney and the popular rise of Herman Cain become conventional wisdom that Cain's campaign has hit the iceberg. Like the Titanic, many incredulous observers think it can't sink. It can. And it is. It may reach port listing greatly and taking on water, but I don't think Cain can reach the general election.

Interestingly, other past bold predictions are paying off. A cycle too soon, but the observation holds true today - the Republican debate process is being dominated by Newt (and a solid Romney). It will be interesting if the process can be narrowed down to just 3 candidates if Newt will become more pointed in his debate style, so far his contempt has been for the media and many Obama policies. If he maintains momentum, will he bust Romney in the chops in order to try and vault from stalking horse to lead runner?
