I just can't see it being Hillary and Rudy. Hillary is too polarizing to a vast section of the country. Rudy is not conservative enough to win his party's nomination. If they did nominate him, then I think he'd walk to a win easily.

How about the battle of the MD's. Howard Dean vs Bill Frist. As a Dean supporter, I know Frist would win that handily.

You're forgetting, if Moore wins, unlikely as that might be, payout after taxes will be about even money.

I agree.

Bill Richardson might be a good bet also.

Evan Bayh - nah! The Democratic primary voter hasn't got enough sense to nominate him.

I was thinking Vilsack is one of the better bets on the Dem side but I am surprised his odds are that short; I figure he is not all that well-known.

I had that thought too. It is a well-established and reputable online sportsbook, so I wouldn't be worried.

He is at the top of the realistic, non-Hilary list right now.

Gov. Vilsack has a phony smile - easily detectable by the voters.

That hog farmer from Arkansas, uneducated hick that he is, won't be able to pronounce his name. He has no chance.

Al Sharpton is a better bet than Arnold S.

He's also a better bet than Bill Clinton or George W. Bush.

The term "non-Hilary" is redundant to the term "realistic."
