Correction: Two weeks ago in this space, I ran a tongue-in-cheek multiple choice test for the New Year. Several readers wrote in that they were surprised that my own choice on Question 1 was answer (a): Dean would be nominated, and then lose to Bush.Is his tongue still in his cheek?
In fact, this was a typographical error. It was corrected in the next day's paper, published New Year's Day, which you probably missed. My best guess is that Clark will be nominated around the third ballot, pick Dean or Gephardt as his running mate, and go on to beat Bush.
I can't tell.
