Bush and the Dow redux

To update my post from two months ago, the day before Bush’s first inauguration, the Dow was at 10,587.59. Today it closed at 10,609.66, a whopping 22.07 points, or 0.2%, increase over the intervening 7 years, 7 months, and 28 days. Again, that’s not a 0.2% increase per year, that’s the entire increase over 7⅔ years.
