Is the Dow record high sustainable? Christine Romans and Ali Velshi weigh in

All eyes are on Wall Street this morning, as folks watch to see if the market can break records two days in a row.

The Dow closed yesterday just below 14,253, a new record. That breaks the old high from October 2007, before the economy crashed.

But can this market surge be sustained? This morning on "Starting Point," CNN's Ali Velshi and Christine Romans look at what's behind the market boom and if it's too late to cash in on it.

    Now it's May 14 and the DOW has been hovering around 15K for some time. My question is: does anyone feel the trickle? All those tax breaks and bailouts in the last three administrations were for nought it seems. The DOW recovered many months ago; but it could reach 20K and the American middle class would feel only a few tepid drops–from the fast food industry, perhaps. So, I wouldn't stand around waiting to get trickled on–besides, who knows what's in that stuff?
