Clinton Still Lags in Iowa Electronic Markets

In the Iowa Electronic Markets, online users can invest up to $500 in shares that are tied to the outcome of the Democratic (or Republican) primary season. On Wednesday, you could have bought into Clinton's chances at around 18 cents a share. You might think that Clinton's stock would have risen (and Obama's stock would have fallen) after Tuesday's win, but the market was relatively unchanged. "In fact, Obama has moved up a point and a half," said University of Iowa spokesman TOM SNEE. Snee said Obama's slight strengthening may be due to the perception that he still has the nomination locked up, and that Clinton is running out of time and money.
