George Will's Cloudy Crystal Ball; Daniel's Or Pawlenty Will Be Sworn In January 2013

Here's what beltway doyen predicted about the GOP race and who would be standing in the West front of the capital building on January 20th 2013 to be sworn in (f not President Obama of course)

Disagreeing with the conventional wisdom the race for the Republican nomination is off to a sluggish start on Sunday’s “This Week with Christiane Amanpour,” columnist George Will said only three candidates really have the potential of being sworn in as president in 2013.
“This is the most open scramble on the Republican side since 1940 when Wendell Willkie came out of the woodwork and swept the field,” Will said. “I think — people are complaining this is not off to a brisk start. I think that’s wrong. I think we know with reasonable certainty that standing up there on the West front of the Capitol on Jan. 20, 2013 will be one of three people: Obama, [former Minnesota Gov. Tim] Pawlenty and [Indiana Gov. Mitch] Daniels. I think that’s it." 
Even better than reading about it you can see him making a fool of himself in this video;

Thus in the light of his poor predictive skills which are of course wishful thinking we can give the same credence to this condescending comment about Sarah Palin as we could have with his Pawlenty/Daniels oracle capacity. Will turned his nose up at the very thought that Palin shoudl even be considered as a presidential candidate.

Here he is again, in his own words.Palin eats up these old time beltway boys and shows them for the elitists they are.If she runs Will will be in danger of being swept away with the other flotsam of yesterday's men.
