All I know about elections I learned playing poker
My friend Jeff Shaw works for an alternative weekly in Minnesota as a blogger (Yup some weeklies somehow afford full-time bloggers, here at EW we blog because we like it. Or something like that). Jeff has had an interesting career. Seattle Mariners Blogger, Fulbright scholar to Japan and I do seem to remember a time period in which he seemed to be supporting himself playing online poker.
Jeff posted an analysis of McCain versus Obama to his blog today based on their gambling preferences.
It goes something like this: McCain plays craps, a dice game based on chance in which statistically if you keep playing, you will always lose money.
Obama favors poker, a game in which, according to Jeff (who would know) if you use some skill, you can win and actually make money.
Hmmmm. It's all about the strategery.
