They’re probably not sad about it, but the overseas oil cartel says these low crude prices could really hurt America’s domestic oil production. More on that. Next, we head to the politics of mixing fizzy drinks at home. Sodastream, based in Isreal, today released its quarterly profits…and something else. Plus, imagine if you had a new boss every few years. That’s what’s happening in many of our schools. Half of new principals leave in their third year on the job. A new report looks at the cost of that turnover to schools and kids. And in five days, the polls will be open.  And with gains for republicans predicted but not assured, we check in with Stan Collender, who contributes to Forbes, and who tracks the future of the federal budget like a gearhead follows cars.
