Putting my money where my mouth is: Fred in SC

Yesterday I gave fifty bucks to Fred Thompson’s campaign. Today I’ll go one better.
I just ordered a wire transfer of fifty bucks into my Intrade account. At the moment, the Intrade prediction market has Fred Thompson’s chance of winning the South Carolina primary at 2%. I have absolute confidence that Fred’s going to shock everybody in South Carolina, especially after his performance in tonight’s debate begins to make an impact. I hereby pledge that when my fifty bucks’ worth of shares in “Fred-to-win-SC” jumps from 2% to over 10%, I’ll cash ’em out and donate the proceeds to Fred’s campaign. That’s $250 to help him fill up his red truck, so to speak.
Who’s with me?
