The long shot: Sarah Palin being selected as Donald Trump’s running mate for the 2016 Presidential Election.
The odds: 33:1. (Meaning: Bet $10 on Palin to pull off the upset, and you will go home with $330.)
Why it might happen: Why not? The one thing I have learned from watching Trump thus far is that he is unpredictable. There are so many people who could be respectable Vice Presidents. But Trump doesn’t want the guy from New Jersey who’s gonna eat all the donuts during those late-night war room debates (Chris Christie). And he doesn’t want the man who once said, “People like me are what stand between us and Auschwitz” (Newt Gingrich). No, he wants the woman who can see Russia from her house (we think).
So take a chance on Palin, Trump!
… So I can win some money.
