PR,

I am unable to respond to your poll as you did not supply the complete nonsense option that I require? }};-()


OT - Did shopping the duty free at the embassy and lunch on "the Hill" yesterday with diplomat lady then headed off to do the capital building tour. This morning we did "Old Alexandria" (it is less than 5 miles from current abode). Hoping to get in a Smithsonian natural history musuem visit tomorrow if grandma's knee holds up. Lots of fun with the 2 & 4 year olds who have invited us to spend Christmas with them as well (they love company).

The capitol building tour was interesting thought the guide spent the whole time showing off her sense of humour. Old Alexandria doesn't even come close to the Halifax waterfront for authenticity but was worth the two plus hours.

Oh, I think any choice that you make would fit that criteria...

GDRVVF.

Note: Assume that this qualification makes the original question utterly moot.

If you can figure out how to phrase a poll based on the result of the election which will pass the board censors, I would appreciate your posting such.

Rather, I think it doesn't matter who wins the presidency... the market will do what the market will do, and it will probably do that based on congressional results. The winner may amplify/dampen the move somewhat, but people put far too much importance on who occupies the White House, when the reality is that while it makes for a great bully pulpit, a single person will usually fail to impose their will on 535 other people who, half the time, can't even agree on when to take vacation (and that's even before the rhetoric versus reality freight train runs them over).

I don't see the option I would pick: Swing wildly in both directions - volatility will rule the day as we await the lame duck congress and their decision on the fiscal cliff.

I might be looking to buy a few S&P straddles.
