Could the only black Senator make it all the way?
Barack Obama, first tipped here when he was 50/1 in May 2005, has given a strong indication that he might run for the White House.
According to the BBC Obama told a TV interviewer that “Given the responses I’ve been getting… I have thought about the possibility” and he said he would give the matter more thought after the mid-term vote.
The Illionois Senator was recently featured on the cover of Time magazine, with the headline “Why Barack Obama could be the Next President.”
On Betfair he is down to 6/1 to get the Democratic nomination while you can still get a bookie price of 33/1 on him going all the way. That will probably tighten.
