As soon as the American mid-term elections are over on Tuesday, attention will switch to the prospects for the next presidential election in November, 2012.

I first floated the idea that Sarah Palin might win the next presidential election in February last year. A lot of people thought I was joking – but I really did think it was a serious possibility.
