This is a little off-topic, but I remember predicting in the early '90s that Clinton's liberal policies (HilaryCare, etc.) would lead to a backlash resulting in a conservative Republican being swept into office in '96. What I failed to anticipate was that Clinton's liberal policies would be so rapidly denounced that Republicans led by Newt Gingrich would take control of the House of Representatives in '94. Clinton heeded the warning and moved to the center in time to save his bacon in '96. Of course running against Bob Dole (a moderate) didn't hurt either.
