I'm nowhere a steady observer of Wall Street. However, binat halev, seems to me that when the DOW "sensed" that the President was going to have a Healthcare Reform Bill to sign, it seemed to be "happy", but when the President didn't get his Healthcare Reform Bill in time, it became "unhappy". From the meager unbiased information we get in the media, seems to be that it's not a matter of Party Politics but a real Civil War between the two parts of Congress: Senate vs House. I look to the two Senators from each state to control Wall Street and Main Street. Just what I see from the printed text available to me. The Tea Party may be encouraged by the two Senators from each State? It's possible. It's natural because in a recession, even Senators have to worry about their jobs just like the graduating engineer does.
