A friend who follows US politics very closely gave me his bestÂ guess as to how 2008 will play out.Â
- Gore beats Hilary (and Kerry, Edwards, Bayh,Â Warner, etc)Â to win the Democratic primary.
- McCain easily wins the Republican primary.
- McCain elected president. Born in 1936, he would then be 72, making himÂ the oldest person to be elected President for the first timeÂ (Reagan was 69 in 1980, 73 in 1984).
Of course, we all know that betting markets tend to do better than pundits, but it’s entertaining to speculate nonetheless.
