From the looks of things:
Politics will not be the main topic of discussion this week in the blogs or newspapers. (Unless Bill Clinton can manage to out-outrage himself.) The stock markets and related worries seem to be on track to totally dominate the news. What's peculiar is that the markets were tremendously optomistic, reaching new highs in October
, after the debt/solvency problem emerged
earlier that year. And now the markets look as if they are headed into full-blown panic mode.
