Jim Cramer often rubs shoulders with movers and shakers. And they all seem to be telling him the same thing.
After chatting with a number of CEOs and business titans in and around the Super Bowl this past week-end, Cramer said, "Their overall sense of things is, 'phew,' Washington didn't screw it up so badly that business is hurt. In fact, with Washington off the front pages we can thrive again."
And Cramer thinks that's enough to make it more likely than not the next 1,000 points in the Dow Jones Industrial Average will be higher, not lower.
