Bill Kristol Supreme Court Prediction Fails (VIDEO)

Via Think Progress, another example of Bill Kristol making a prediction, and getting it wrong. On Fox News Sunday Kristol, a regular panelist, predicted that President Obama would nominate Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm to replace Justice David Souter on the Supreme Court. As we found out today, Obama in fact chose Judge Sonia Sotomayor. Kristol said Sunday:

I think he has made up his mind, and I think it's going to be Jennifer Granholm, the governor of Michigan, for this reason. Obama gave that interview Friday which we saw the snippet from. In that interview, he uses the term practical seven times -- I want someone with a practical sense of how the world works, I want someone with practical experience.

Watch Kristol's remarks below, and check out Think Progress for more examples of Kristol's failed visions of the future.
