Don't laugh. Read. In my article last night, I posited that a politician didn't even have to be intelligent in order to get elected. A certain charisma, a certain appearance, a certain reputation, and a few canned phrases can do the...
Those of you who know me know that I'm becoming cautiously more and more optimistic about November. For a bunch of reasons. On the economic front, June saw 372,000 new jobs created, blowing through expectations. Companies are still hiring, and...
