An ancient precinct weighs in. According to a Yale professor who specializes in Nostradamus, McCain is slated to win the Presidency.
CAP NEWS - "Conventional wisdom picks Obama. Nostradamus, four and a half centuries ago, picked John McCain," said Dr. Hubert Evans, professor of Renaissance Studies at Yale University and author of the best-selling "Nostradamus: Prophesize This!"
"Quatrain 78, Century X in particular seems to indicate that Obama had better not be measuring the White House windows for curtains quite yet, at least by my interpretation," said Dr. Evans.
The quatrain to which Dr. Evans refers - Quatrain 78 - is located in the grouping of stanzas known as Century X. Originally published in 1555 in Nostradamus' still-popular Les Prophecies, Quatrain 78 reads in full:
At the war's end:
The Feeble Kept One will strike down the Night
And his Imbecile Queen will rise from the snow
Bedecked in finery and the pelt of a wolf.
Do I believe this? Well if we are to take the quatrain literally, the war hasn't ended yet and I don't think Laura Bush is the Imbecile Queen. (Nor do I think Cindy McCain OR Michelle Obama is either.) I am really not sure where Dr.Evans is getting his predictions. It's your call, readers....
ANd here is a PS: John Hogue has an excellent Nostradamus based blog and has a few opinions of his own about the above prediction. Read more on John Hogues Hogue Prophesy blog.
