I do hope you're right in your prediction. The iffy question is will the GOP be fiscally responsible this time around? I think there's a much better chance of that than with the Democrats, but the GOP record on spending isn't great either.

I did not make that prediction as a political columnist, or as the former Libertarian Presidential contender, or the 2008 Libertarian Vice Presidential nominee. I relied on my career as a Las Vegas oddsmaker. Long before I got into politics, I started out as the Network Oddsmaker and NFL Analyst for CNBC (then known as Financial News Network).
