Hope you're right, but I am not nearly so optimistic. Each party thinks their job is to oppose the other, and make them look bad in the process. Hard to see any significant negotiations taking place. A last minute short term deal maybe, but we will face the same mess again in short order. No one wants to address the white elephant in the room--spending and frightening debt. Our politicians only deal with crises, and seldom the underlying issues that lead to these crises. Market takes a hit tomorrow IMO.
