I am frequently wrong. Now there’s an admission you won’t hear that often from someone who makes a living in Washington.

But this most recent round of primary results reminded me of all of the times I have assumed outcomes and wound up on the wrong end of a prediction.

I hate being wrong, and am so good at it.
