*looks into his magical ball*
-We will remain in Iraq, the tax payer will continue to pay for a war that is costing $200 million a day. Meanwhile the Iraqis will become less
patient with their country being occupied regardless of what the republican led white house says and will increase their voices in wanting US troops
So, We will continue to stay in Iraq for the next 4years sacrificing a further 2000 troops, costing us another $300 billion all the while Iraqs
wanting us to leave and the middle eastern tension increasing.
-McCain will have to pull out troops eventually, probably after about 4years, but by that time the peoples attention would have been led away from the
Bush administration and the 2008 election.
-What happened under the Bush administration will probably be forgotten under the McCain administration. Nobody will bother talking about Bush and the
reason for iraq in the first place will probably be forgotten aswell.
Bush will be pardoned, we all know why.
-Osama remains on the run but it would not matter to the american people for Iraq distracted them from the war on terrorism and McCains new
administration will further distract people from Iraq.
-Recession and debt will continue to rise through the McCain presidency.
-Drilling in Alaska eventually although only by 2016 when Clinton is elected that oil will drop by a mere 2 cents. The oil will last through the
Clinton administration and will run out by the time Obama is elected in 2024.
Besides the historical implications....
-millions of people come to watch and celebrate Obamas inauguration in Washington DC, never before has this been seen before. Among these millions are
around 20,000 protestors consisting of angry disgruntled conservatives, "religious" folk and KKK/Neo nazi members. Despite the protestors, hardling
any of them are noticed and many are pushed to the back of the crowds celebrating Obamas presidency.
Protestors claim on various news channels that their rights have been taken away, that they have been moved back forcefully. Angry people shouting
racial slurrs in the backround as the reporter asks some of the protestors questions. Many protestors say this is an example of Obamas new fascist
government (however hypocritical that may sound). People quickly forget about them the next day.
-Troop pull out of Iraq, in place will be UN peace forces and Iraqi troops.
-Things in Iraq will not improve for the first 4years neither will they get worse, things will remain relatively the same. Probably improve
-More focus on Osama, another 30,000 troops probably transferred into Afghanistan.
-Osama will probably be found dead 2years into Obamas presidency, rightwingers will claim that it was their war on terrorism that killed him.
-Under the democratic controlled whitehouse, people more willing in charging Bush and Karl Rove with corruption, abuse of power and misleading the
public. Im not saying they will be indefinitely charged, but there will be MUCH more people out there willing to go against Bush.co in court for their
handling of Washington over the last 8years.
-Most probably more revelations will come out about Iraq and the Bush administration, more people will come forward.
-Obamas performance as president will be good, not the best but certainly good, not like Carter (30years ago, get over it
) and nowhere near Bush
as I see it.
-The troop pull out of the war will probably assist with the ending of the recession.
-Various movies, books will come out about the truth behind the Bush administration and the conservatives.
-Obama will have a stronger relationship with many of the middle eastern leaders as compared to any other president. Probably wont improve things
there much but will strengthen trust.
-Assassination attempt on Obama fails. The suspect caught in this is a young white religious man "supposedly" angry at Obama for allowing abortion
rights. Investigation into this person leads to a dead end. The young man refuses to speak any more, is sentenced to life in prison.
-The US government makes an offical apology to african americans and their ancestors for slavery. Republicans are furious and many conservatives
protest in the streets carrying signs like "the end of america" and "they dont deserve anything", ofcourse the protestors are small in numbers and
it lasts a mere 2 days.
-Blacks protest that president Obama continues to ignore his own people despite the fact his paid the most attention to them than anybody else.
Numbers of protestors however are small.
-Obama ends his presidency in 2012 leaving Hillary Clinton, his secretary of state, to run for the democratic nomination. Many suspect that a deal was
made in 2008 for Obama to gain Hill supporters in turn for Hillary to take Obamas place in 2012.
