Year's presidential election.
So first just how weak -- how strong is this economy really.
There's new evidence tonight of strong improvement in the labor market and the prospect of continued economic growth.

On October 27 saying quote it's a turning point in the economy a turning point for these markets separate reports today show private sector job growth on an upswing a big drop in weekly unemployment claims.
And planned layoffs hitting the lowest level in six months.
The ADP report showed private sector jobs surging by more than 300000.
Weekly jobless claims last week fell by 151000.
Continuing a trend of slow but consistent.
More good news for an economy and markets.

And Sarkozy and Angela Merkel.
How important there'd be in our lives if we had a 6% unemployment rate.

We are seeing a foundation being built right now all right so you are encouraged.
That this is -- some -- -- nation that did you know you're encouraged that something good.
Is is currently OK and Allen and positive we are seeing good things began.
