It will also bedevil whoever occupies the White House for the next four years. According to 32 economists surveyed by the Associated Press, the unemployment rate, now 8.2 percent, will exceed its “normal” range of 5 to 6 percent until 2015 or later. The presidential winner in November will serve through 2016. (AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais, File)
