Let’s see, the only position left is Health, and even if a Republican is picked for that, that will only make 3. Might as well cash out 4 now.

As it states in the market information, I intend to keep this market open until the completion of President Obama’s first 100 days in office. Who knows? Someone might resign. Though at ~12% the market is, I think, mispricing the probability of such an event.

When’s this getting cashed out?

Oh you have to be kidding me, Senator Gregg! Ugh, this one hit me hard.

Right now, I count one Republican, Gates. Although, he’s actually a registered independent.

ChloeBurns   •   Thu Jan 15 2009 at 02:22pm PST

Ray LaHood would be the second Republican if he is confirmed as Transportation Secretary.

Please note that I do not intend to include Administrator of the EPA, Director of the OMB, Director of National Drug Control Policy, or U.S. Trade Representative in this count. Secretaries — and Attorneys General — only.
