The 2008 Presidential Candidates and Their Views on Poker and the UIGEA


I just contacted the online campaigns of John Edwards, John McCain, Dennis Kucinich, Rudy Giuliani, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Ron Paul, Fred Thompson, Mike Huckabee and Mitt Romney to find out two things: (1) Whether they play poker (I already know that Barack plays – see here); (2) What their views are on the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA) preventing banks and other financial institutions from allowing people to use funds to pay for online gambling.  I’ll be surprised if anyone gets back to me.  My prediction is that Dennis Kucinich and Ron Paul will be most opposed to the Act.  Stay tuned.
