Interesting chart shows price for 2012.PRES.OBAMA spiked up one year ago in May. That spike corresponds with Obama killing Osama bin Laden last May. As you can see, the effect lasted about a week, trading leveled off, and then in late June the price began to plummet all the way to mid October before leveling off and gradually rising to around 60 where it's been since February. Will this season's values mirror the same season in 2011? We will soon find out - soon after the Walker recall election.
Speaking of Walker, just since my update at 3:58PM, Walker has moved on up to 69.1. During the same 4 hours or so, Obama has dropped another three tenths to 59.6
