House Republican leadership "optimistic" after meeting

Republican leaders in the House just stepped out of a closed door meeting to declare they were "optimistic" that their membership would support the bailout bill this afternoon. While they wouldn't talk specific numbers, they said they were continuing to speak with the various factions of their membership. Eric Cantor (R-Va.) said middle-class Americans were beginning to see the impact of the credit crisis on their 401(k) plans and investments. Stay tuned: A vote could come between 12:30 p.m. and 1 p.m.

Those of us who invest in small caps need to pay attention to the vote tonight. If Congress fails to approve the bailout today look for more selling. If they do approve the bill the winners will be financials and housing. With the current economic outlook I don’t expect any bounce to last.
