National Journal Adopts Prediction Markets

Intrade announced today that it is partnering with the National Journal to bring online political prediction markets inside the Beltway. The new site, which should be available soon on the Journal's homepage, is bound to be a hit with politicos.

While Chris Masse of Midasoracle panned the partnership in a post today, we're decidedly more optimistic. This is exactly the kind of deal that lends credence to the industry and, better yet, encourages political junkies to battle it out with professional pundits.
