For those who like to gamble...

What odds would you consider the minimum worth betting that President McCain won't survive a full first term? (Death by any means).
I'm thinking if I can get better than 5:1, I'll wager $100.

I keep forgetting that Britain and Ireland will set odds on just about every thing.

Only two reasons I would not have made that bet on Bushie is that Democrats do not tend to settle political issues with a bullet and Dick Cheney.

What is the play if he doesn't get elected. That would tend to queer the bet from the get go, I would think.

@ McBear

I'm gonna call and see if they will accept basis "If McCain is elected,he won't survive the full 4 year term.."

If not I will wait until after the election,but of course the odds will be less favorable.
