Each year at this time I go out on a limb and predict 10 big news stories I believe will happen in the year to come. Usually I get two or three right, come close on a couple of others, and am way off on all the rest. Click here to read last year’s predictions for 2014 and see how I did.

Combine that with the fact it’s already obvious Nancy Boehner and Ditch McConnell have no plans to keep their campaign promises to stop Obama, and I predict the big political trend of 2015 will be unprecedented efforts by state legislatures to insulate themselves from Washington.
8. Two NFL franchises re-locate.
California will gain and lose NFL franchises next year. Get ready for the return of the Los Angeles Rams, who will bolt St. Louis and re-locate to where they originally started.
