Updating the Odds
From time to time, I'll be doing a little housekeeping on already completed candidate profiles, and updating the odds. Today, I'm changing the odds on three candidates, all on the Democratic side: I've dropped Al Gore from 15-1 to 22-1 (after all, is anyone talking about him? The buzz is deafening in its silence); John Kerry drops from 22-1 to 26-1 (mainly as a result of the recent form SF-180 fiasco, which reminded us all that Kerry can't shoot straight with anyone about anything); and Hillary's odds have improved, from 8-1 to 6-1 (looking at the convential wisdom, you'd think she had the nomination already; I say she still faces an uphill battle).
