At the time, he was a solid 2-1 favorite over John McCain.
Since September, the debates have been completed and the financial crisis has devastated many Americans.
Consequently, we here in Las Vegas have revised the "price" on Obama.
In other words, it will cost you $1,000 to make $100 if you like Obama. On the other hand if you still think John McCain has a chance, a $600 wager will pay you $1,000.
Essentially, a McCain proposition is "off the board."
But if I were you, I wouldn't count on a last-minute upset. The presidential election isn't sports where one team or a single individual can rise above the moment.
This is politics where the cards have been face up for months.
"Whispering Eddie" says he left a dead-end insurance job in New Jersey five years ago to wager on professional sports and play poker. He says that although he is only "a few cents" ahead, he's having more fun…despite Nevada's high illegal alien population.
