He was, of course, referring to the removal of that crook in the White House and his replacement by Al Gore ;-).

More seriously, I think Nostradamus is a load of bunk, but I am mildly concerned about this, given that it's probably his most famous prediction, one of the few with dates, and there may be plenty of people out there trying to make it come true. With that and all the Y2K hysteria and all the real date bugs, 1999 will be an interesting year...
