Maybe, but not before Jan. 20th.
If Obama is as smart as advertised, why should he save the market now? People know the market is going down. If I am the elected president, I want the market to crash before I take it over. First, I won't be blamed for the crash. Seconde, if the market goes up after I take over the WH. I will look great as a president who saved the market.
Will he be dumb enough to say anything to pump the market up before Jan. 2009? Who knows.
By the way, the conservative elected president give up on doing anyting to save the market or economy 100 days before he hand over the power. And Obama might be the first President in history become the acting president before Jan.
