Matt Yglesias has reconsidered his reconsideration:
I’m more and more thinking that I should never have backed away from my initial prediction that Dean is inevitable and that it was inevitable that he would once again appear evitable before his ultimate inevitability came through. If one thing’s become clear over the past two weeks it’s that no one has any business trying to predict stuff, but if I had to make a pick, it’s looking like Dean (not for 1st in NH, or at least not necessarily) but for the nomination.
Inevitable? To paraphrase Inigo Montoya, I don’t think that word means what Matt thinks it means.
Fresh off being dead wrong on Iowa, I hereby predict that Dean will not win the nomination. While I’m at it, I am also writing off Joe Lieberman, Wesley Clark, Dennis Kucinich, and Al Sharpton.
