Extremely interesting article about predicting American presidential elections in a Washington Post offshoot, especially considering that I have a non-fiction book coming out in a few days, to be called "It's the Economy Stupid, an Ivy League/Oxbridge/Rhodes Scholar Education in Political Economy in One Hour".

http://www.washingtonpost.com...

Basically, they say Obama can't lose because he's the incumbent and things aren't worse than they are already.

A simple, straighforward version of the jacket copy, offered for comment earlier, from Patricia Sierra:

IT'S THE ECONOMY, STUPID explains in under an hour what truly matters in this (or any other) Presidential election.

You'll be able to identify the culprits responsible for economic theory and policy -- and you'll know why they've created this mess.

In other words, you'll be as smart as Bill Clinton, the Rhodes Scholar for whom the catch phrase "It's the economy, stupid" was coined.

IT'S THE ECONOMY, STUPID
An Ivy League/Oxbridge/Rhodes Scholar
Education in Political Economy
in One Hour

I like it! Can you improve on it? Don't be shy.
