Wanton, Irresponsible Prediction of the Week

I reserve the right to deny that this ever happened.

Barack Obama will choose Chuck Hagel as his running mate (weird, right?) and defeat Republicans Mike Huckabee and John McCain in a not-so-close raise.

My rationale for the Hagel pick is that he only sort of was a Republican and been largely against the war in Iraq. He's seen as a reasoned individual, a compromiser. Both he and Obama had separate meetings with Mayor Michael Bloomberg in New York, a mutual friend. The media has played up rumors of Bloomberg and Hagel running together on a third party ticket, but I don't buy that at all.



UPDATE:

oh my gosh it's happening

Just the way the guys that sell ad shares for CNN drew it up:

The Drama, The Excitement. Clinton. Obama. It's the NBA on NBC!

That's not as completely insane and unthinkable as it first appears.

Very far out there, though. I'll give you all the credit in the world if it comes to pass.

Cue the haunting John Tesh NBA on NBC theme music.
