In 1555 Nostradamus predicted that December 2000 would see "the village idiot will come forth to be acclaimed the leader in the home of greatest power." ?

This email was making rounds around the internet after the election.

In 1555, Nostradamus wrote:
Come the millennium, month 12
In the home of greatest power,
The village idiot will come forth
To be acclaimed the leader.


Nostradamus wrote a lot of stuff so general (and obscure) that with the help of a little imagination (and some liberal interpretations from the original French), people have claimed he has "predicted" nearly every event of significance since the mid-16th century.

I actually saw a documentary that tried to explain whether Nostradamous really predicted evens like 9/11 or the world wars and the evidence is very inconclusive.
