Yesterday, Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping visited the White House and the Pentagon before meeting with American business leaders at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. The Westminster Dog Show dropped Pedigree as a sponsor this year, saying its sad ads that promote adoption from animal shelters turned off its audience. And President's Day is fast approaching, but a lot of Americans don't take that day, or others, off -- and that could be a problem for the economy.
