If "prognosticating her run" be rewritten as "foretelling her run", will the meaning remain the same? There appears to be a nuance that is beyond me.

Thanks in anticipation.

I've seen several outlets prognosticating her run in 2020, but I finally think I found the source--and it looks like speculation because of some rhetoric in her PAC mailings.

@oristarA,
There is no nuance that I can perceive, which appears to be the case for all the native speakers here. A more formal word, a more weighty word no doubt.

Oops wrong room, sorry, meant to post on duets.

Then you go and spoil it all by saying something stupid like you did above.
