Markets Like Edwards VP Pick
The Tradesports prediction market
has Bush falling by about 4 percentage points to 53% on news of the the Edwards VP selection.
Tradesports is an Irish "trading exchange," that allows customers to place bets on events like "Bush wins presidential election," "Bin Laden captured by 9/30/04" (currently trading at 12%), and (more typically I assume) "Yankees beat Red Sox tomorrow."
