Intrade Odds Have Obama Opening Up Huge Lead

A few weeks back I posted a piece noting that Barak Obama had opened up his first lead in the international gaming odds. Now, just under three weeks later, Obama has opened up a ridiculously large lead for both the odds of him winning the Democratic party nomination and winning the Presidency.

According to Intrade the Democratic primary odds are 82 to 17 in his favor.
