Not a huge difference, but I see a trend emerging. It'll teach you not to bet.

Precisely!

Although I did personally once hold a Paddy Power online account, there was an abstract reason for it though and was more to demonstrate an aspect of gambling to a friend who was into it Razz.

Yeh that one. There is a trend last few weeks. Though the head to head after the Dem Conv. will bring new trends.

That's like my first bet since the 1978 Grand National for crying out loud. cyclops

That is a brilliant site 905, perhaps we should link it to the portal.

EVM0197 - that was a great eurovision link too. Perhaps that should also be on the portal for the next week?

I was amazed to hear the election's in November, I was thinking sometime next year at least!

Is anyone with a reputation still presenting Hillary as a candidate? From what I gather on P.ie, they seem to be consoling themselves with the prospect of a McCain win and another shot at the presidency next time for herself.

There's not a chance she'll try again in four years time, no matter what happens in November. She threw everything into winning it this time, including a lot of money and had every advantage that she could possibility have had and she still failed, so there's way she'll try again.

I would agree with that Rocky. She missed the boat here. Or rather, Obama bought up all the boat tickets.

I doubt it's entirely up to him/her. If s/he really wanted it, s/he could put pressure on the nominee or the party for the gig; in return s/he ends the race and saves everyone hassle.

Paris seems to have done good.

What are the bets now?
