There is something fishy about Nostradamous

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.
