 Letter From the Professor - September 3, 2008

Politics, Politics, Politics!
After months and months (and months) of pregame activities, we're now finally in the heart of the presidential election season
. This week, the Republicans are holding their national convention in St. Paul, following a hectic, historic week in which the Democratic National Convention took the Denver area by storm.


And next week, when these conventions are over, there will be two more months of intense campaigning before Americans hit the polls on November 4 to decide who will be the next president.


As you know, we at CAP have taken a direct interest in this election -- and all politics -- in large part because of UIGEA, the 2006 legislation that basically ended all U.S.-based online gaming. Will the Democrats have the ability (or motivation) to overturn the UIGEA? Will Republicans ever figure out that this kind of legislation goes directly against their often-repeated "government out of our personal lives" mantra? Can either party be enticed to change UIGEA?


It's far too early to tell, but we have a good feeling about Obama and his mandate for change (as well as the Democrats' overall progressive attitude). As you'll see below, some Forum posters agree with us. If you have anything  to chime in, check out the CAP Money link below to find where you can voice your opinions. We'd love to know what you think.
