7. Not in this case. I saw through him during the McClurkin fiasco,
which made all his soaring rhetoric about bringing people together look like the steaming bullshit that it was, so I knew what we were getting.

16. Nope, Obama is a Centrist Technocrat
the country will not elect, and cannot elect real change

And I know this will be all but popular with some.

But the elites will not let you elect that change... live with it, or do something about it.

THAT is what "cheated" feels like.

This Fed Chief Brought to You by Enron

By: emptywheel Monday January 25, 2010 7:59 am

Just wanted to throw two tidbits into the debate on Ben Bernankes reconfirmation. First, this quote, which needs no explanation.

In the event that Bernanke isnt confirmed, several sources say, Federal Reserve Board Vice Chairman Donald Kohn likely would be elevated to acting chair of the U.S. central bank. Bernanke would be entitled to stay on the board until his term as a Fed governor expires in 2020, but the sources said Bernanke could instead return to a professorship at Princeton University.

Possible successors to Bernanke include three people currently advising Obama on the economy, former Fed chief Paul Volcker, Larry Summers and Christina Romer.

Kohn was traveling in Europe at the end of the week on Fed business, but strategy on the Bernanke confirmation was being led by former Enron lobbyist Linda Robertson, who is viewed as an effective advocate for the banking chief on Capitol Hill.
