Poker Advocate Charles Nesson on The Colbert Report

Harvard Law School Professor Charles Nesson, the founder of the Global Poker Strategic Thinking Society and one of the game's most outspoken advocates, was on "The Colbert Report" last night to make his case for poker, saying that it is "one of the best tools we have to teach negotiation, risk assessment, strategic thinking and other essential life skills." He also talks about his desire to start a poker university online as a way to teach strategy in an open education environment, and he proposes hosting a poker game for the presidential candidates.

Watch the clip from the show below, and check out the kind of creepy YouTube video he did about online poker after the jump.
