Will the President listen? Will he hear? Will the election matter to him? I think the answer is a resounding no. I don't see anything about this President that speaks to making peace and getting along with the other side of the aisle, and I don't see the other side coming together with him either because, beginning tomorrow, we will be in presidential-election mode.

What would make me change my mind? If we see that he brings in CEOs and centrist members of the party. If he picks, for instance, my guest tonight, Governor Ed Rendell, a centrist Democrat who has demonstrated an ability to grow jobs in a shellacked state -- then I will be wrong. If he selects someone like Ed Whitacre, the former CEO of General Motors, as a senior adviser, it could be game on. Or Ivan Seidenberg from Verizon ( VZ).

But I think that is almost completely unlikely.

And that is why I am betting that Washington will become irrelevant until the presidential election of 2012. There is just way too much rancor and too little compromise and the president has shown no sign of moving to the right.

There is a tremendous amount of thinking that says I am wrong. But the stock market, which has been rallying, is not rallying on the belief of compromise. I think it is rallying on the belief of governmental irrelevance -- except when it comes to the Federal Reserve -- and that's just fine for me.

At the time of publication, Cramer held no position in the stock mentioned.

Jim Cramer, founder and chairman of TheStreet.com, writes daily market commentary for TheStreet.com's RealMoney and runs the charitable trust portfolio, Action Alerts PLUS. He also participates in video segments on TheStreet.com TV and serves as host of CNBC's "Mad Money" television program.

Mr. Cramer graduated magna cum laude from Harvard College, where he was president of The Harvard Crimson. He worked as a journalist at the Tallahassee Democrat and the Los Angeles Herald Examiner, covering everything from sports to homicide before moving to New York to help start American Lawyer magazine. After a three-year stint, Mr. Cramer entered Harvard Law School and received his J.D. in 1984. Instead of practicing law, however, he joined Goldman Sachs, where he worked in sales and trading. In 1987, he left Goldman to start his own hedge fund. While he worked at his fund, Mr. Cramer helped start Smart Money for Dow Jones and then, in 1996, he founded TheStreet.com, of which he is chairman and where he has served as a columnist and contributor since. In 2000, Mr. Cramer retired from active money management to embrace media full time, including radio and television.

Mr. Cramer is the author of " Confessions of a Street Addict," "You Got Screwed," "Jim Cramer's Real Money," "Jim Cramer's Mad Money," "Jim Cramer's Stay Mad for Life" and, most recently, "Jim Cramer's Getting Back to Even." He has written for Time magazine and New York magazine and has been featured on CBS' 60 Minutes, NBC's Nightly News with Brian Williams, Meet the Press, Today, The Tonight Show, Late Night and MSNBC's Morning Joe.
