The AIG and America's Election 2008

What's done is done. It will take more than either Presidential candidate to decide the fate of the nation based on the AIG mess (and the cast of others) . The greatest minds of the financial world have been called in, to weigh in, on what has actually happened. It is a nightmare which Americans are having difficulty waking up from...and so, we wait. It doesn't matter who you are voting for this election, Americans (and reporters) need to be realistic. Neither candidate can wrap their arms around this situation, even with handpicked financial advisors, and give credible solutions. It will be up to those meeting, as we speak, to come up viable options. President Bush would like to see it before the opening bell sounds on Monday. Let's give the candidates time to digest it and tweak their stance on the direction to follow rather than forcing them to flip-flop as information is given to them (in installments) because the "headlines" demand it. It's not making either candidate look good. And that isn't making America look too great either.

Note: It is okay to change your mind in the voting booth.
