Be careful; remember what happened in 2009 - Obama had a second "secret" swearing-in because he didn't read the oath as it appears in the Constitution in the first one. He was not particularly thrilled that he was asked to do it again, but birthers were going to have a field day with it if he didn't.

That was John Roberts
He tried to wing the oath from memory and blew it
2nd one, he read from a paper.

BetFair is taking action on Trump to leave before the end of his term. The betting odds suggest a 9.8% chance.

As a reminder, political opinions are not allowed at WoV. Discussion of betting on politics is.

Hello Wizard. Since RSactuary is all talk but no action. (RSactuary wrote "I woud bet all my life savings") Would you take US$50 please? I will take 10-1 odds meaning if I win, I will make US$500. If I lose, I will lose US$50. I think it is a very sweet deal to you. +EV. To make it better, my potential winnings will be put towards the dinner of 2022 Spring Fling of WizardofVegas.

Speedy has paid me once, and I ferried money from him to pay off a different WoV member. So Wiz... hes probably good for the EASY $50. He will be on the hook for $20 to me already. I got my bet in early so only gave him 9-1!

No No No No, Soopoo. The sales pitch should be +EV. Also just in case, US$500 for 2022 dinner of Spring Fling.
(Thanks for the help, you are invited to dinner of 2022 Spring Fling, all food and non alcoholic beverages covered by me.)

How have the odds changed tonight now that McConnell apparently supports impeachment and some House republicans like Liz Cheney are voting to impeach?

I accept! Please confirm by 12:01 AM (Pacific time) on Jan 13 or I will consider the bet to have no action, as the news is changing by the hour.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.
