But it’s the secretary of State, who vied for the nation’s top job in the 2008 race for the White House, who makes an appearance farther down the list.

Hillary Clinton has a 40-1 shot of becoming the commander in chief in 2013. That’s ahead of, you know, some of the, like, actual candidates.

Clinton, who has said in interviews that she’s done pursuing elected office, comes out ahead of Republican presidential hopefuls Rick Santorum and Rep. Michele Bachmann (Minn.), who both are placed at 80 to 1.

But there’s another politician on whom gamblers can wager to win the election — and another who’s also not even running, at the moment. Vice President Biden has a one-in-a-hundred chance of being voted into the Oval Office, come November, according to the site.
