    That’s a $100.00 pledge from Dr. Russell Saunders, thank you very much for the generous pledge and may the odds be in your favor!

    (Now, that bumps me out of contention, so I’m going to think for a few minutes about where I want to put my money next…)Report

    Hmmn… so Team Green is riding the Kaine/Gingrich train to victory?Report

  3. Avatar Marchmaine says:

    Possibly… but both Trump/Gingrich and Clinton/Kaine seem ripe for some wild Wildean aphorisms that I’m not clever enough to conceive.Report

    I’ll take J for $40 Alex, I mean Burt…Report

  5. Is there a way to just donate? I could make a small donation, but don’t want to play the veepstakes.Report

    Hmm. With that shortlist, I’m thinking Michelle was pretty smart to outbid me for group H. I’ve still got a few live ones in group A, though.Report

    Could you post a zoomable link to the board? It’s too blurry to read on my phone.Report

  8. Avatar Fortytwo says:

    I got $50 on block J and $50 on block E.Report

  9. Avatar Michael Cain says:

    $40 on group D. I’d pay that just to see the Tancredo/Hickenlooper all-Colorado VP debate.Report

  10. Avatar Elizabeth Picciuto says:

    $45 on H, please!Report

  11. Avatar Burt Likko says:

    Now I’m not saying that it’ll either be Gingrich or Christie on the Republican side.

    But I think the Washington Post is saying pretty much that it’ll be either Gingrich or Christie.

    So your time to jump into, or back onto, the board here may be drawing near.Report

      Hey, who’s not in it right now and looking for a place to bid? Because with Kaine/Gingritch, B is still a steal. I’d snap that up If I weren’t already in for $35 on another group.Report

  12. Avatar Burt Likko says:

    Attention! Trump shortlist leaked! (Well, maybe.)

    Christie and Gingrich still in contention. Announcement expected on Friday. Reminder: once the announcement is made, pledges are locked in.Report

    Looks like none of the above is the winner!Report
