2007: Que Sera Sera Ist Quarter Picks

Cheers to Bill in Portland Maine for taking a look back at 2006 in his Cheers and Jeers Diary on DailyKos. At this time last year, who' a thunk it?

But as 2006 draws to a close, I find myself looking ahead to what 2007 will bring. So, I am dusting off my cracked and off center crystal ball and taking a swing and probably more than a few misses. But as the old song goes:

Que sera, sera,

whatever will be, will be,

the future's not ours to see,

Que sera, sera.

So, here goes ...

January 2007

Barack Obama will announce his candidacy for President of the United States on Oprah.

Hillary Clinton will go on Oprah and Oprah will tell her not to run.

The Chicago Bears and San Diego Chargers win their conference championships and will meet in Super Bowl XLI.

The Florida Gators beat Ohio state University and secure their second national championship in the last 12 months to go along with their NCAA hoops championship.

The House of Representatives will refuse to seat either candidate from FL-13 and a special election will have to be held to fill the seat.

February 2007

Nancy Pelosi is named Valentine of the Decade as the first female speaker of the House. And oh BTW, her 100 hour program sails thorough Congress and is signed into law by the President.

The Chicago Bears led by a strong performance by former Gator QB Rex Grossman win the Super Bowl in a thrilling over time game.

Kathleen Sebelius announces her candidacy for President of the United States on The Daly Show.

March 2007

Spring Training begins in Florida. The special election in FL-13 has more money spent than in any other House election ever. Jennings wins going away. All the votes are cast by paper absentee ballots.

The first Army brigade of US troops withdraws from Iraq to mark the beginning of the phased withdrawal of all US troops.

Nude dance king Joe Redner is elected Mayor of Tampa, pledging to run a completely transparent government.

OK, that's the first quarter of 2007. I think that's enough for now. All snarky comments are welcome, if I can snark back. Also, suggestions for the 2nd quarter of 2007 greatly appreciated.

OK, there are mine for the 1st Quarter of 2007. Now its your turn. Get in the game. Tell us what you see happening in 2007. Not that we'd ever look back and check up on you! :)

Off-topic, but you guys should have a link to your mailing list on your site so people can join.

You have a spelling error in your banner text: "A gathering spot for Florida Kossacks to keep in touch with issues of primary concerns to Floridians, or wahtever else Florida Kossacks might think wothwhile."

That should be worthwhile.

Also, a "contact us" link would be good too. Although, I've only used blogger on my own domain, rather than using its hosting so I don't know if you can set up a contact form.

BTW, I'm meowmissy at Daily Kos.

...oh, and it looks like they've already seated Crazy Vern Buchanon which is disappointing, sure, but a politically shrewd move at this point. It looks like Christine is out at this point.

Also, I think Sebelius is fantastic, but I'm thinking she's got her eye on the VP spot.
