WASHINGTON - The world is anxiously awaiting new ideas and fresh leadership from America's new president to deal with the economic crisis that has encircled the globe with sickening speed. Unemployment is climbing, the stock market has plummeted and businesses are teetering.

But for 77 days after the election, the problems will be George Bush's — and both Barack Obama and John McCain have signaled they will defer to him.

Both Obama and McCain understand the enormous pressure that the Election Day victor will be under to begin taking aggressive action virtually as soon as the votes are counted. But reality likely will prevent much of that from happening.

After election, new president has to wait 77 days - Decision '08

Yes we have 77 days after the election to take the appropriate action considering whatever the outcome.

1) If Mccain wins expect a surge in the NYSE, still a recession but a slow upturn

2) If Obama wins it is time to cash out of the NYSE and put your money safely out of reach of the Obama government, lay off workers , and batten down the hatches for the depression soon to come.

The ones who just signed up to vote or just got into politics don't know about it.
