    Obama has done a great job thus far picking his cabinet. All of them are smart experienced people, who will no doubt help Obama.

    No he hasn't. He is picking all Clinton people **in my Cajuncowboy whiny voice**. I can't believe he would want to pick people that were apart of a productive time period where people had jobs and the economy was good.

    Bring Monica back **Cajuncowboy enters again** Get out.

    When I saw what the market did today i was actually wondering what you thought. I wasn't sure if this was just a standard large rebound, and we've seen a couple of those recently, or if it was due to the announcement of Geither as SoT. You think it was the latter?

    Considering the markets bounced almost in concert with the exact time his name was leaked; I would think it was the latter.

    I stopped trying to make sense of this market a few weeks ago.
