2008 Presidential Election Futures: My Dream Election

I was looking at the odds on the 2008 Presidential election. Hillary Clinton is the favorite at 3-1. George Allen Jr. is 7-1 and John McCain is 8-1

The longest shot is Michael Moore at 7500-1. Pat Robertson is 2000-1. I like to gamble, but not enough to take either of those odds even for a goof.

My dream election would be a competition between Laura Bush, Jesse Ventura, and James Carville all of whom are running at 1000-1. Even better would be if the election was so tightly contested between the three that it was thrown into the House of Representatives for decision. Once the election was decided by the House in favor of Jesse Ventura, the two losers would claim voting irregularities and kick it to the Supreme Court. The court would overturn Jesse "The Body" Ventura's election in favor of Laura Bush. The Social Conservatives would howl that Laura does not have a strong enough record on social issues, and the Supreme Court would overturn their previous ruling and give it to either Alito, Scalia, or Thomas. And then we'd be right back where we started.

Let's make it a real circus in 2008.
