History Predicts: McCain May Be Doomed
According to Alan Lichtman, author of Thirteen Keys to the Presidency, the party of the incumbent President has lost every election in which a recession occurred in the fall of an election year. Here is the list from previous years: Hayes (1876), Cleveland (1884), McKinley (1896), Harding (1920), Roosevelt (1932), Kennedy (1960), and Reagan (1980). If history is any predictor McCain may very well be doomed.
