The Index offers nothing scary this Halloween.
Barack Obama (BHO) 85.8 +7.54 +8.79%
No, we're not calling the election. But this week the Illinois senator's star power really came into focus as over 33 million people tuned into his "closing statement" and his appearance on The Daily Show lifted that program and it's lead out -- the Colbert Report -- to their highest ratings ever.
It's good to know he has something to fall back on should this who Leader of the Free World thing not work out.
Mike Singletary (MS50) 6.78 -1.86 -21.53%
Analysts here have ALWAYS loved Mike Singletary for his intellectual and physical dominance over the middle linebacking position in the 1980s. However, in his first week on the job as head coach of the San Francisco 49ers Singletary, to make a point to his team at half-time, dropped his pants to his ankles and made a speech. Yep. First week on the job.
I'm laughing cause I'm STILL not wearing pants.
Yeah... not very professional. C'mon Mike, we don't need this now.
Let's keep it together, people.
