Paul Wellstone, prophet

From MNPublius:

Standing on the floor of the United States Senate five years ago, Paul Wellstone predicted that a war in Iraq would cost us a fortune in blood and treasure. He predicted that oil prices would rise and that Al Qaeda would use U.S. intervention as a recruiting tool. He predicted that our reputation around the world would suffer and so would our war on terror and our efforts in Afghanistan. He predicted “a years-long effort to stabilize Iraq after an invasion.”

Pretty accurate forecasting, don't you think, boys and girls?

Also posted there is the video of Wellstone explaining his "no" vote on the resolution:
