In Las Vegas you can bet on almost anything--except who is going to win the next presidential election. It's illegal to bet on the presidential election anywhere in the United States, but that's not the case overseas. So, if you're wondering what the odds are that your favorite candidate will be in the White House in 2009, then Ben Eckstein is your man. He is the co-founder of the syndicated column "America's Line," which tracks the odds in politics, sports and entertainment. After watching Thursday's Democratic presidential debate in Las Vegas, Eckstein shares his thoughts about the odds.
