Predictions have been started on weather Palin will drop out ?

As of today, a prediction market started with the odds of Sarah Palin dropping out of the race.

Some people are saying that "She is going to withdraw stating that she needs to be with her family more... "

This decision has completely hurt McCain.

    It sure seems like a lot of Jr. High kids get on the internet when school is out.

    It seems she was McCain's bit of "maverick rebellion" against the Rove/Bush machine that had selected Romney as his running mate when he wanted Leiberman. He couldn't have the VP choice he wanted so he announced Palin before Rove/Bush could force Romney on the ticket.

    As of 1:45pm Tuesday, traders on the Intrade prediction market are selling the chance that Palin will drop off John McCain's ticket at 13.9. Check for more updates as the market moves: http://www.intrade.com/

    Intrade predicted Joe Biden would be Barack Obama's running mate in August and its traders were also correct about every Senate race in 2006. It fell flat in predicting a Democratic majority.

    I knew this was next. Have you seen any of the old party pros drinking any Kool Aid? they're in the back room now trying to talk McSame out of this before the convention ends.

    If you're old enough to remember Geraldine Ferraro the same thing happened. her husband had some shady real estate dealing and possible mob ties. Mondale stayed with her and lost in a landslide. He'll dig in heels just like Mondale and stay with her and lose in a landslide.

    It certainly is rocky, isn't it? You have to admire Senator McCain's courage. I'm supporting the other guy but this pick sure surprised me. By the way, weather is the daily result of climate, whether is the word indicating choice. Spell check can't do everything!

    Nothing associated with Palin has hurt McCain.

    If McCain forced her out now, he would almost certainly lose in November. I don't think he will.

    I could not disagree with you more.. If the pregnancy of her young daughter is what your referring to.. It has helped her.. It shows she doesn't just say something and not mean it.. Many even most families in america have had to deal with something similar and it shows her strengths and that she believes what she says.. As much as the liberals and the news media want it to damage her, it is helping her. If the news media doesn't let up on the story, they are about to create a backlash against them selves and the obama campaign.. People resent what is going on.. they relate to it and sympathize with her.. Your liberal friends need to shut up about it if they dont want to really get people against them.. This in no way compares to Obamas problems of rizko, ayers, wright and Farrakhan.... just wait and see.. tell me this why is the news media so concerned about the daughters pregnacy and not concerned about Obamas dealings with an admitted terrorts like ayers or a mobster like rizko.. ???? as far as im concerned its not apples and apples...

    I don't want her to drop out. It'll just insure Obama's win to the white house if she stays on board!

    This would be the only way to salvage the McCain campaign.
