The consumption habits of every delegate to the Copenhagen global-warming conference will be a model to the world: i.e., they will match or rise above pre-conference consumption levels through uninhibited use of airplanes, air conditioning, computers, flat-screen TVs, iPods, and every marvelous object in our life that depends on energy for its manufacture and delivery.
China will continue to remorselessly flout the hopes of every European envirocrat who has persuaded himself that the Wests ruthless competitor is willing to squelch its economic growth in favor of carbon reduction.
The economy will improve, despite the best efforts of the Democrats to weight it down with more regulations and the promise of future taxes. The Democrats will take credit for the improvement, the Republicans will dismiss the growth as inadequate, positions which would be exactly reversed should the parties relative political positions also be reversed.
Democrats will hound the banks to increase their lending, especially home loans, to credit-poor minorities.
Unchastened by the messy health-care fight and measly global-warming balance sheet, Obama will push for an illegal-alien amnesty. It will pass. Amnesty opponents wont marshal the same fervor as they did in defeating the Bush-McCain-Kennedy amnesty.
