Krugman Predicts President Perry?

Sounds like it. He blogs today on the new Ron Suskind book (emphasis mine):

OK, obviously I do have to read his account of what went wrong. But I was tearing my hair out, very much in public, over the missed opportunities early in the Obama administration in real time, as they happened; I don’t see much point in dwelling on them again, at least for now — maybe I’ll want to do postmortems after Rick Perry is sworn into office.

That’s not to condemn Suskind, who is an awesome reporter. It’s just that given my role, at this point I believe I should mainly be using the past only to illumine the choices we face looking forward.
