The New Yorker's David Remnick predicts Barack Obama will win reelection in 2012. Remnick dismisses potential candidates as well as the notion that Obama is in any sense a radical. "As many nightmares as I've had in my life, I can't see Sarah Palin becoming the President of the United States," jokes Remnick.
When speculating on who will win the Republican nomination for 2012, New Yorker editor David Remnick dismisses Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney and Sarah Palin as presidential candidates. "I actually think some people feign running as a business proposition," comments Remnick.
