    Over a year ago I said if the Dow crossed 10K Bush was reelected. I did not expect to happen this far out though.

    OK if the Dow hits a new record high….

10,000!

Thanks largely to a surge in traffic caused by mentions on InstaPundit, OTB went over 10,000 visitors a few minutes ago. We hit 5,000 yesterday morning and only had around 3,400 visits when I went to bed Thursday night right as Glenn was about to plug the site. Thanks to Glenn, Scott, Stephen, and all the others who have linked OTB and helped get OTB noticed.
