Good morning all,

Thanks to my friends at Public Opinion Strategies, I received an interesting blurb that really does give me confidance that this race and political cycle is wide open. When I think “what else could happen in a month”, let’s look back at what happened in the LAST month…

  • Obama accepted the Demo nomination in front of a crowed of 80,000 at Invesco Field
  • McCain names Sarah Palin as his running mate for the Rep nomination
  • Hurricanes Gustav and Ike ravage the Gulf
  • U.S. unemployment climes to its highest level in seven years
  • Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac placed under FHFA conservatorship
  • Lehman bankrupt, Merrill bought, AIG collapses, JP Morgan acquires WaMu, Wachovia goes bust
  • President Bush calls for $700 billion bailout
  • Ted Stevens is the first US Senator to go on trial since 1981
  • McCain & Obama engage in first presidential debate
  • “Bailout” legislation fails to pass in the House, causing the largest-ever point drop in the Dow.

Yeah…so what ELSE can happen??? Yikes!!!

Happy Wednesday,
