John Edwards May Not Want to Check InTrade Today; Fred Thomspon Might

On the InTrade prediction market site, John Edwards has fallen behind the undeclared Al Gore. Here is Edwards’s recent price chart:

And here is Gore’s:

Note how far Gore has fallen since the Oscar hubbub. Note, also, that Gore remains (fairly) adamant that he won’t run.

And here is Giuliani:

    Not really. As any native Wisconsinite will tell you (insert joke here), Tommy is about as electable as Sol Wachtler’s indicted ham sandwich
