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.

    Of course, we know what has happened, but I predicted this long very early on. Poor McCain. He didn’t really stand a chance. I only hope Obama can live up to the rhetoric and lead us in the way he’s talked about. There’s a lot on his plate: 2 wars, health insurance crisis, unemployment, recession. I don’t envy the guy.
