Elephant Ears

This blog is dedicated to the political happenings in the Valley and Southwest Virginia. As the the name implies, this blog will have posts based on what is heard by this elephant's (GOPer's) ears. It is also a great treat to get while at the county fair or a carnival.

Tradesports Predictor?

I was looking at Tradesports.com last night and noticed you can now bet on what party will win a state in 2008.

Virginia is a 75% likelihood of a GOP win. For those of you dems out there who honestly believe Virginia will go blue in 2008; here is your chance to make some cash. You can buy a contract at 30 to pay 100; so you can more than triple your money in a year and a half.

Obviously this isn't an exact science, but the best predictor of anything is usually something that people have wagered money on.

    Hmm... I don't think Goodlatte would approve of this, GOPHokie.

    Yeah I was following Tradesports back in 2005 during the Kilgore/Kaine race. They were pretty much on target.
