Winner gets a bad economy

Happy Election Day! Don't forget to show up at the polls.

Without a doubt, a lot is riding on today. No matter who comes out ahead, the next president has a lot of work to do on the economy. But, according to this op-ed in today's Boston Globe, there's a strong chance the stock market will be significantly higher by the end of the winner's term. If history can provide a window to the future, whoever comes out on top of today's bout will have plenty of time to build a rosier economic outlook by 2012. The only questions: Who, and how?
