The U.S. Elections on the Economy

It is quite a well-known fact that the state of the economy has helped Obama with his U.S. presidential campaign considerably, not least because his focus from the get-go has always been on the economy, whereas McCain’s has not. But is there anyone out there besides me who thinks that the election may have played its part in keeping the (U.S.) economy from crashing more than it has?

The reason I ask this is because I have personally felt oddly reassured that a new U.S. president will be coming in to, for lack of a better word, rescue the country economically. Maybe I have bought into Obama’s rhetoric that change is necessary, and that he is probably the one more likely to bring it; but even if I had not, just watching catching up with political news helps me divert my attention away from the financial calamity that the U.S. markets has been, and toward and into the more sunny future.
