NOTE: I started working on this posting a few weeks ago. Since then, the market has gone even higher and unemployment has dropped even lower. Also, a lot of media outlets are starting to wonder the same thing I am - How can you make America Great "Again" when it is already doing so well?

The bottom line is, though, our economy is presently the strongest in the world. Our present economic conditions are steady and prosperous, if not wildly so. In four years, the question will be for voters - are you better off now than you were four years ago? Seems like the only place the economy can go from here, is down.
It is going to be an interesting experience!
UPDATE: Since I wrote this, mortgage rates for 30-year-fixed loans have jumped from about 3.6% to over 4%! Seems like things are changing already!
