In a month or so, I'll have to write my annual audit of blown predictions. Please indulge me as I remember one, from 50-odd hours ago, that was not wrong. At that time, Washington was chattering about Bill Clinton being AT ODDS with the president, demanding he "keep his promise" and allow people to keep their old individual insurance.


Hey, that doesn't look so bad, does it? Perhaps the former president was not declaring war on the current one, to build up his wife's 2016 campaign.
