Not a Pretty Picture

Supreme Court Justice Hillary Clinton?  Secretary of State John Kerry?  How 'bout a lot of people (and small businesses) seeing their marginal income tax rates double?

Those are some of the outcomes predicted under an Obama presidency.

Perhaps one of the more interesting predictions is made by Mark Siegel, a former Democratic National Committee executive director.  He says President Obama would create a brand-new Volunteer Youth Network. 

It's not clear what that is, but given Obama's ties to ACORN -- and his work with Bill Ayres to radicalize schoolchildren in Chicago -- it's hardly reassuring.  What, exactly, would Obama's network be "volunteering" to do?
