Does everybody have to do a predictions column going into the new year?
Rick Santorum does a pretty good job of it.
The 2010 midterms. Unfortunately for Democrats, their liberal base already sees this (health care) bill for what it is: a Faustian bargain with Washington special interests and pork-driven lawmakers at the expense of real reform. Should this pass, "Repeal" will be the slogan and impassioned Republicans and disillusioned independents - not frustrated Democrats - will vote in droves in November.
My predictions - next year between Christmas and New Year's, there will be plenty of year-in-review columns and looks ahead to 2011.
