No one is going to blame the winning party for not adjusting. It won, for heaven's sake. The losers have to adjust. If they cast out the Josey Wales lost-causers and stop defending the 10%, particularly the 1% that funded so much of their campaigns, then we go higher, much higher. If they don't compromise we are sunk. The next 1,000 to 2,000 is down until we readjust to a worse economic world where we can't be the engine and China can't be the engine and Europe just splinters and falls apart. That's why, reluctantly, I can write 1,000 words on politics, and not stocks, and actually have it matter!
