Hillary now odds-on favourite again

Ladbrokes is calling it "one of the largest shocks in political betting history" - along with journalists and pollsters the money had also predicted an Obama win. Yesterday, Ladbrokes had him even to be the next US president. Now he's on 2/1 with Hillary again favourite at 5/4. The Republicans come some distance behind: McCain 7/2 amd Giuliani 7/1. William Hill offering 10/1 on Clinton/Obama joint ticket. At one point Hillary was 8/1 for taking New Hampshire. Damn.
