Michel Nostradamus prophecies of next U.S. Presidents are always a happening after every new elected candidate, since people only then find truth in the master's well known predictions. Lets have an earlier look already during the race at what is said about the winner of the United States Presidential Election 2008, between Obama and McCain:
»Par detracteur calumnié à puis nay.
Quand istront faicts enormes & martiaux:
La moindre part dubieuse à l'aisnay,
Et tost au regne seront faicts partiaux.«
(Nostradamus, Century 6 Quatrain 95)
»By the detractor calumny (lodged) against
the younger born. When enormous and warlike
deeds will go on: The least part doubtful for
the elder one, and soon in the kingdom
there will be patrician deeds.« (Translation)
My personal interpretation of Nostradamus' prophecy:
»The least part«, the minority, isn't »for the elder one«, while John McCain would be the oldest American President yet, the oldest there has ever been and so the majority will support him to win the elections in future.
Comparing top candidates in the 2008 U.S. Presidential election race (including primary): John McCain's age is quite an obvious characteristica, just as Hillary has her female status and Obama is black, I guess: The selective strategy should help out here, as (from all what I know) it seems that no candidate than McCain comes closer to Nostradamus' prediction. If Nostradamus in the year 1555 would have referred to Hillary or Obama then his prophecy should say something about »boobs« or »blacks«, if you know what I mean. But all I find characteristically in his lines are words about »the elder« - and McCain would be the oldest person ever to become U.S. President, even older than Reagan was in his first presidential campaign (age of 69 then); that is what got my attention.
Until now there was always truth found by connecting Nostradamus' prophecies directly to the next elected U.S. President, I don't see why this should be allowed to change all over sudden. And as of now, it looks like John McCain will be at least the Republican Nominee. But keep in mind: My prediction is not based on Michel de Nostredame; in fact I found about him only now. However, being backed up by such a great name can't actually hurt, I guess.
