Here’s my two-step theory of how to win Super Bowls:
Step 1: Make the playoffs.
Step 2: Win the last game.
Every year 12 NFL teams make the playoffs. 11 of those teams will lose their last game. The playoff team that wins their last game wins the Super Bowl. Sometimes the best team wins, sometimes the lowest seed takes home the trophy instead.
But this post isn’t really about football.
I don’t know who will win the presidential election next year. But I do know this: The winner will be a Democrat or a Republican.
Barack Obama will be the Democratic candidate. If the election is a referendum on Obama’s first term, the Republican will win.
Lately we keep seeing lots of people on both sides saying things like “There is no way Soandso could beat Obama.” That is wrong.
Don’t forget – Bush won.
