They Don't Get it on Wall Street

Folks on Wall Street don't seem to get it. Inexperience is a desirable credential!
There have been claims made by some that the rush of selling that hit the market in the afternoon came through when the Associated Press reported that Illinois Senator Barack Obama has enough delegates to claim the Democratic nomination for president.
Strategist Al Goldman, of Wachovia Securities, said the market seemed to be treating Mr. Obama as a relative unknown compared to his longer-serving rivals from the Senate, Hillary Rodham Clinton and John McCain. “Now, I don’t know whether he would be good, bad, or indifferent as president, but this uncertainty is what the market seems to be focusing on for now,” said Mr. Goldman.

Different strokes for different folks, I guess.
