Elections

Most of you are focused on the big rebound Obama had in North Carolina and Indiana last night. Right wing radio led by Rush Limbaugh’s “Operation Chaos” did get Republican’s to cross over and vote for Clinton. Again a reasonable guesstimate of this impact is between 2% and 8% of the vote.

However, here in little Brookline Massachusetts we had an election too where our major ballot initiative to increase local taxes won by about 8500 to 5000 votes – More funding for local fire, police and schools.

I was a candidate running for 5 open positions and did win re election. Came in second by one vote. An old friend whose campaign’s I have managed before topped the ticket. Therefore, Market Updates has suffered over the last two days. Will be back tomorrow.

Almost every new ETF recently recommended are streaking higher.

Will leave you with “The Empire Strikes Barak” If you are an Obama fan or neutral this is funny. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a8lvc-azCXY
