VOTE GORE! (AGAIN) Al (Photo: Getty Images)
The Nobel Peace Prize isn't handed out until Friday, but smart-money gamblers would do well to wager on Al Gore while the line is still good.
At 5/2, the one-time almost president, Oscar-winner, and global warming squawk box is the betus.com favorite to take home the prize, followed by Holocaust child-saver Irena Sendler (9/2), former Finnish president and international mediator Martti Ahtisaari (5/1), and AIDS crusader Stephen Lewis (10/1).

Of course, risk-takers with some extra cash flow may want to take a walk with pill-popper Rush Limbaugh, whose support from the Landmark Legal Foundation hasn't helped his chances as much as he'd like (100/1). The only nominee with worse odds? President Bush (1000/1).
