OPEN THREAD: Election Factors for Investors ?

We have the second presidential campaign debate tonight.

I am wondering: What does the outcome of the election mean for investors? (I mean specifically for investors, not things that may impact investors indirectly, like estate or tax tax brackets).

I can think of  a few areas where there is little difference, and a few where the impact is significant:

1. Dividend Tax Rate
2. Capital Gains tax
3. Federal Reserve Interest rate posture
4. Treasury Secretary (and related appointments
5. Energy Policy
6. ?

I am sure there are more, but nothing is leaping out at me from the INVVESTOR’S PERSPECTIVE.


What say ye?
