It's dangerous to make radical predictions like this one so early out, but it makes fascinating reading anyway. I suspect Barone is greatly underestimating the power the hard left and hard right have in the Democratic and Republican primaries, for one thing. Two New Yorkers running against each other for the presidency? Don't think so. John McCain. He loves the media too much. My own guess is that the candidates will be two people not even being talked about much right now.
