Elected leaders and the internet
I predict that at some point we will elect leaders (even the President) without need for them to be part of the Republican or Democrat parties. In the age of Google and Youtube, articulate ideas and charisma will be able to spread quickly without the need for CNN to package it up for consumption. And even if someone manages to get 20% or so of the popular vote, but doesn't win the election, the Republican/Democrat two party stranglehold will start to loosen, and they will know that in the next election they could very well lose.
