    Would be good to hear what you guys in the US have to say.

    A few weeks ago an Irish Bookmaker (Paddy Power) who are big in the UK paid out on Barack Obama to be the Democratic Presidential nominee. Here's the story:

    they decided to pay out on Barack after he won the Iowa vote but it seems to have backfired on them as he has since lost New Hampshire to Clinton, and now Paddy Power have him as 2nd favourite to be president (clinton 11/10 and Obama 9/4) even though they have already paid out $75,000 on him.

    What do you guys make of it? 1st Female President or 1st Black President?

    Misinfo? I've seen the slander emails where he is supposedly holding his hands in front of him, rather than over his heart, during the 'Pledge' but the fact is, it was during the National Anthem; and although others may have had their hands on their hearts in the picture, it isn't necessarily protocal to cover your heart when singing... that's a NASCAR thing I think :D

    Longshot and good for the country? Edwards/Richardson
    Longer shots and best? Paul/Kucinich 2008:D

    True, True, but they (the Neo Cons & Right Wing)all call us Conspiracy Theorists, they don't want someone with great moral standards like Ron Paul...they want someone they can control...:mad:

    I'd be willing to wager against any certain percentage to be garnered by Bloomberg/field whomever. I saw on cspan yesterday where the same two creepy guys who started unity08 have now started 'draft bloomy' after subtracting themselves from unity08 (which is now wholly focused on their lawsuit against the FEC).

    Florida feb5 will tell us a lot about rudyG and if the independant phenom withers and left goes left and right right after that, expect bloomy to announce, but the indecided/indy trend is keeping him away for now.

    Yea man, I'm definitely looking forward to watching SC this Saturday and then Florida, should weed out a couple, it actually surprised me yesterday to see Ron Paul get 54,434 votes, way above Fred T and Rudy G and F#*#*#g Fox News still refuses to give him credit. His movement does seem to be growing though...:thumbsup:

    Hey just so you don't miss it Lojo the Florida Primary is Tue. Jan 29th

    You couldn't be more wrong. Barack Obama has said the pledge many times, and has lead it in the Senate.

    Stop reading Republican talking point smear emails.

    No wonder American politics are so laughable, when the average citizen can't even take 2 minutes to educate themselves in any sort of factual manner and rely on smear emails that have no intelligent basis as their source of information.

    I'm an American citizen, actually. I'm in the UK occasionally on work-related stuff, etc, but the good ol' USA is my home.

    Purely PR, no way they had 75k to pay out, would have been a few grand maximum. They always make up the figures to get in the papers and get a mention online. Seems to work though so fair play to them.

    I agree. For a supposedly "big UK bookie" they are pathetic at taking bets.

    Opened account in Feb this year, bet 400 on a premiership match out of a max bet of 2500.

    Next bet on a premiership bet 120 on a max bet of 120??

    Both bets lost and attempted to bet on another match and max bet was 12.22. Called them and was offered 20 on their telebet.

    Another UK joke bookie. All they want are mugs and casino players.
