Some people on both sides of the political aisle have decided that the Harry Potter series is an analogy of the current political situation in America. The conservatives, at least the ones who aren't askeered to read the satanic series, claim that Harry represents Bush and the Death Eaters are the terrorists. Liberals claim that the Bush regime is represented by the Death Eaters and Harry represents the American public. Being a liberal and Harry Potter fan, I really can't see Bush as Harry. For one thing, Harry can read and is interested in learning. Although Harry is wealthy (inheritance from his parents) and gets into the premiere school of witchcraft and wizardry based on his family name, I still can't buy Harry as Bush or vice versa.
After reading the last book, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, I have come to a few conclusions, not politically motivated.
WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD. IF YOU HAVEN'T READ THE BOOK AND DON'T WANT TO KNOW SOME MAJOR PLOT POINTS...
STOP READING NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is my take on what will happen in the final book.
1. Dumbledore is not dead. Snape cast a nonverbal spell of protection on him while he was verbally flinging him from the tower.
2. Snape is truly a good guy who will die fighting valiantly for the Order of the Phoenix. Snape could have easily killed or captured Harry in the final fight scene. He did not. In fact he merely blocked Harry's spells and did nothing to counter them. Snape was furious when Harry called him a coward and the reason is that Snape knows he is risking his life, limb and soul to act as a double (or is it triple) agent for the Order. The oath he took to protect Draco does nothing to keep him from working for the Order. I believe he took a similar oath to Dumbledore which will be revealed in the final book.
3. Neville Longbottom will turn out to be a more important character than we have been lead to believe. He may even be the chosen one.
4. Sirius Black will also come back from the dead or suspended animation in the final chapter.
That is all for now. I guess we will have to wait a year or so to find out if I am right. I have a pretty good record at this kind of thing. Just read my October 2004 prediction called, "Why Kerry will win in November".
