Hillary Clinton to become the next US president

Kerry's loss has opened up the way to the White House for Hillary Clinton

American presidential elections are officially over. In the meantime, British bookmakers are already starting to accept bets for the next US leader. According to them, Hillary Rodham Clinton appears to be the most prominent candidate for the post.

The world's biggest bookmaker company Ladbrokes has already begun accepting bets for the US’ former first lady in a five to one ratio. The William Hill Company considers Hillary's chances for victory as six to one, reports RIA “Novosti.”

Neither Ladbrokes nor William Hill proved to be wrong. Both of them placed their bets of George Bush in yesterday's presidential elections in the US.

Experts used to claim that Kerry's victory would put an end for big political ambitions of Hillary Clinton. Had Kerry won the elections now, he would have definitely run for reelection in 2008, thus disabling the former first lady to run for president from Democrats. Now however, with Bush as the victor, American Democrats raise their hopes for Clinton's wife to become the next president of the United States of America.
