    One of the current Big Clues being hidden or downplayed is Obama’s drawing power. When the President can’t draw 1000 at several prearranged and announced campaign stops – when he was packing them in four years ago – he should be concerned.

    Another is the volume of the markets. The entire market appreciation under Obama has been on very low volume. This makes it suspect and subject to rapid correction. (If you are considering investment options today, Mason jars buried in the woods offer better chances than equities right now).

    I’m beginning to think this might be an electoral debacle for the Democrats on the scale of Reagan’s crushing of Mondale. I know, I know, “don’t get cocky”, etc.
