CLINTON TO DROP OUT FRI ? UPDATE
by pastor john, Wed Feb 27, 2008 at 11:48:49 AM EST
A rumor is spreading through DC (my town) like wildfire from high ranking sources:
Hillary Clinton will avoid humiliation and drop out this Friday, FEBRUARY 29th.
Suddenly, on Intrade, shares of "Dropout.Feb08.Clinton" have surged almost 800%.
Is that a result of the rumors or is someone in the know putting their money where their mouth is?
Intrade right now:
Last: 14.9 (up +12.9)
Drudge hasn't picked it up, and usually that's a good sign that it's not true (since Drudge would run it even if it weren't true). But this is still an interesting turn of events.
I wouldn't blame Hillary Clinton for avoiding the humiliation of a devastating final defeat at the hands of a political neophyte. It would be the best thing for both her party, and her.
UPDATE: IT'S UP TO 35.0!!! That means there's a 35% chance that she's going to drop out BY THIS FRIDAY!!!
UPDATE #2: WOAH. Someone else hears the same thing!!!
