I think at 33-1 Joe Biden has value. Has a two term sitting VP ever got so little consideration?


Actually, until George H.W. Bush, no incumbent vice-president had gotten elected president since Martin Van Buren back in 1836.

I think Joe has played the buffoon too many times for people to trust him as President. He's pretty sharp, but it's cost him to be a "loose cannon", especially when he's let things out that the Obama White House wasn't ready to take a public position on. The party machine won't let him be a serious contender.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

I chose Rand Paul because hilarity would ensue.

I think it's hard to find early value in any of the tea party guys, or the midatlantic liberals. Just not enough separation there to pick one. I'd look more to someone who could most certainly survive the first round of cuts, and then I'd hedge the crap out of my bet (sorry, wiz).

My thought is that if Hillary doesn't run Obama may be obligated to endorse Biden since he is his two time VP.

Has a two time VP that decides to run ever not been endorsed by their president? I don't think he will win, but I do see value at 33-1.

Let the record show I bet $50 at 10 to 1 odds against SOOPOO on Ben Carson to win the GOP primary.

It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Looking at the lines as originally posted, John Kasich would have been a very good wager.
All hindsight of course.

Not exactly. The bet was on who was going to be the Republican nominee for president. Please confirm!
