What do you think will be the big stories next year and how will they play out? There are some large and consequential subjects on the table for 2012. Scary, even. For starters, there's a presidential election. How's that going to turn out? Who wins the GOP nomination? Does President Obama keep his chair? What about war with Iran? What are the odds? Will the euro finally implode and with what effect on the rest of us? Will the United States start to create jobs or do we stay depressingly stagnant? Any good news on the horizon? Will the iPad take over the world? Will we discover the Higgs boson? (And will somebody remind me why that's so important?) Please share your thoughts on what you think will be the big stories to come at editor@usnews.com.
