Washington Post opinion writers have made their predictions for the big stories in 2013.

Here’s one to wet your whistle from liberal columnist Dana Milbank:

Michele Bachmann will be elected Speaker of the House. Congress will approve an increase in the debt ceiling after President Obama threatens drone strikes on the GOP leadership. Republican House oversight committee chairman Darrell Issa will launch a comprehensive probe of the Obama administration “just because.” Iran will agree to cease its nuclear program if Secretary of State John Kerry “will stop talking so much.” In Washington, nothing productive will be accomplished.

At least some of that is probably true.

Also in predictions, Post media critic Erik Wemple says: “Fox News will rename the Fox Business Network the Fox Benghazi Network.”
