PALIN FACTOR SHORTENS McCAIN PRESIDENTIAL ODDS

'Barack is still favourite but the Palin factor has impacted on support for McCain and since her appointment, 75% of the bets we have taken have been for him.' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
WILLIAM HILL have installed Sarah Palin as 6/1 favourite to be the first female President of the USA, overtaking former favourite Hillary Clinton, who is now offered at 7/1. 'Sarah's appointment has sparked a minor attack of punter Palin-mania and we have had to cut the odds for her to win the 2012 Election and also to become the first female President' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
