This Dollar/Euro thing is getting ridiculous

Today I went to Bergdorf to look at this pair of Alaia ankle boots I want for fall. They're $1,775.

Seriously, this dollar-euro-pound thing is really getting out of hand. If one of the presidential candidates would make the campaign promise that once he's elected, I'd be better able to afford European luxury apparel and accessories? I'd vote for him.
