The Magic is Working
Some people say that by the time November 4 rolled around, the stock market had already "priced in" a win by Mr. Obama. Obviously not. Without even taking office yet, it seems that Mr. Obama has been able to push stocks, once the purview of the rich, into a territory where mere mortals can afford them. Awesome! I'm hoping that he can keep working that same magic so that someday even the very poor will be able to buy stocks, too. They'll need assistance when it comes to financial planning and picking those stocks, but I'm sure we can make a new cabinet-level position for that sort of thing.
