I am currently reading a collection of Isaac Asimov's short stories and one of the stories was about the United States election of '08. It just kind of made me laugh to see what people thought the future would be and it makes me cautious about reading such things today :-)
Back in the 60's, we had such inflated ideas of what the future would be like, especially travel to other planets. We were sure we would be living on the moon by the 80's. I remember being so scared that I might someday have to take off in a rocket to outer space! The main changes in the world in this book were political ones. They also had cars that you just told where you wanted to go and they took you there, which I don't think is too unbelievable since we now have cars that can park themselves!
