Bill Kristol and the stopped clock

Actually, being right twice a day would be an improvement for the NYT columnist. He tops the "The 10 Worst Predictions for 2008" as compiled by Foreign Policy:

Weekly Standard editor and New York Times columnist William Kristol was hardly alone in thinking that the Democratic primary was Clinton's to lose, but it takes a special kind of self-confidence to make a declaration this sweeping more than a year before the first Iowa caucus was held. After Iowa, Kristol lurched to the other extreme, declaring that Clinton would lose New Hampshire and that "There will be no Clinton Restoration." It's also worth pointing out that this second wildly premature prediction was made in a Times column titled, "President Mike Huckabee?" The Times is currently rumored to be looking for his replacement.

Let's hope those rumors come to fruition.
