Can House predict the future?

Well, not House, but House's writers at least. Check out Season 1, Episode 17, Role Model to see a black senator gone presidential candidate. Did I mention this episode aired in April 2005?

I totally noticed that too, I've been rewatching the entire past seasons lately.... I forgot about that episode and when I saw it I was like whoa!!! back in early 2005 barely anyone outside of congress even knew who Obama was, he wouldnt start campaigning for almost another year.... I dont know if that ep's story was a nod to some rumors they heard or just a coincidence.... but its funny how in it House stays with his typical matter-of-fact pronouncments that there will "never be a black president" when talking to the guy about why he's running... ha ha ha...it sure seemed that way for a long time didnt it??? Two and three years ago nobody thought the housing bubble would burst, we'd be on the edge of a depression, AND we'd have a black president...all by the end of 2008.. *amazing* how things do change...
anyone else think that actor portraying the sick senator and Obama have similar features?? not like brothers or anything but just a similar general look to them face and body-wise?? I sort of did...wonder if that was on purpose or just happenstance... (i suppose if any of the writers kept their tabs on politics they would have known Obama to be the most likely black senator to run... the guy in the episode was even giving similar themes in his speech in the beginning, "moral imperatives " and etc...) anyways maybe its all just coincidence but i think its interesting...
