Paddy Power pays out early on Madam President


It seems Paddy Power is already declaring victory for HRC in this election by offering betters early payouts.

Yes, odds point to an HRC presidency but with Wikileaks and Anonymous threatening sordid truth bombs on HRC and WJC I wonder whether the Irish bookie may have too much Dutch courage and might be staring down the prospect of needing to drown sorrows with 12 pints of Guinness…
