    to anyone willing to give even odds on mccain vs obama in the general...are u serious?  look me up if u are serious!  there are no takers on that bet, i promise you.  there is only hot air in that department, and the msm treats it like it is real.  give me a break for once.

        because u are led to believe it is close.  you might not be a gambler...but if you were given even odds right now, how much would you lay on mccain?  ....that's what i thought.
        •  I think Obama has a 55% chance of winning but (0+ / 0-)

          given what we know about the two candidates it should be 70% for Obama.

            55/45 a political landslide?  it is also the best dream of a handicapper to get even odds on 55/45. Obama will be the next president of the united states. his campaign understands odds and how to play them. he wouldn't be where he is now, if he didn't have a solid handle on how to play.

              I didn't say the vote would be 55/45 but the odds were 55/45 at this time.
