Poker Players Alliance recently posted some info on the major candidates’ records on poker.
With the exception of Ron Paul – all of the Republican candidates are on the record being against online gambling- with Giuliani and Romney, not surprisingly, changing their positions recently to align better with the anti-gambling beliefs of conservative Christian voters.
On the Democratic side- Edwards is the only one who seems to be against it.
Both Clinton and Obama have expessed a desire to “study Internet gambling to see whether it can be fairly regulated so that individuals can safely participate in it and American businesses can compete in the international market.”
And Obama “is reputed to be a good player, and doesn’t mind letting it be known that he enjoys playing poker for money.”
One more reason to vote for the Dems, I guess.
