Place Your Bets: Intrade Starts Palin Market

Online prediction market Intrade has launched a contract on the probability of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin being dropped as John McCain’s running mate ahead of the November presidential election. Palin was named Friday as the Republican VP choice, surprising many political pundits, though she had emerged as the frontrunner on Intrade’s own VP market. The nascent market put the probability of her withdrawal from the contest at 15% today, in the wake of news that the social conservative’s 17-year old daughter is pregnant.
