    vouch for/must

    I canīt vouch for this, but she must come here tomorrow.
    Is this sentence o.k.? Is vouch for used in the right way? Can I infer about the future?

    Re: vouch for/must

    If you can't vouch for something, you can't be sure it will happen or that it's true etc. so you can't use ' she must come...' which indicates certainty.
