Harvard Law School Professor Charles Nesson is a big fan of poker. In fact, he likes it so much he's the founder and President of the Global Poker Strategic Thinking Society, a group which aims to make the game a legitimate tool for teaching strategy. He went on "The Colbert Report" to make his case for poker as "more than just a fun game; it has real educational possibilities. It is one of the best tools we have to teach negotiation, risk assessment, strategic thinking and other essential life skills." His best idea: hosting a poker game for presidential candidates to test their skill and strategic acumen. Video after the jump.
