William Safire's Spooky Political Predictions

icon Download icon Download (thanks to Heather for videos)

Just in time for Halloween, semi-retired New York Times columnist, William Safire, made some frightful political predictions on this morning's Meet The Press -- some of which sounded more like tricks than treats. The predictions dealt mostly with presidential candidates and their possible choices for running mates.

How does an Obama/Feinstein ticket strike you? How about Romney/Petraeus? Would it not bring joy to your heart to see Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice running as John McCain's VP? Safire also predicted a possible running mate for Senator Hillary Clinton, but you'll have to watch the clip for that. *shudder*
