Prediction 1: Obama as Megalomaniac

Within the first month of Barack Obama's presidency it will become more apparent than it was during the election that he is a certified megalomaniac.

"Megalomania" is defined by Webster's New World Dictionary of the American Language as "a mental disorder characterized by delusions of grandeur, wealth, power, etc . . . a passion for, or for doing, big things . . . a tendency to exaggerate."

Obama's megalomania once in office will dwarf the examples of it that were apparent during the election campaign, e.g.: "I will not weaponize space"; "I will pull the troops out of Iraq"; the site and theatrical staging of his acceptance speech; ditching his family during his victory speech.

Watch closely, and listen to the pronouns.
