Irish gambling on Obama Saying 'life is Like a Box of Chocolates' in State of the Union
"Forest Obama Saying 'Life is Like a Box of Chocolates'!"
The "giant" Irish bookmaker Paddy Power is offering 250 to 1 odds that President Barack Obama will say that "Life is like a box of chocolates" in his first State of the Union address tonight.
The first topic, unsurprisingly, is expected to be "heath care reform" at 4-1 while "the war on terror" is just 14-1.
The relatively poor betting on "terror" shows how far we've come from the State of the Union in 2002 when George W gave us the "axis of evil."
Paddy Power expects the speech to clock in at less than 45 minutes giving just 11/2.
