Barack Obama plans, as Hugh Hewitt of all people points out, to name a national security team as good as conservatives, having lost the election, could possibly expect. Here Greg Mankiw, who was an economic adviser in GWB's first term weighs in on his economic team. Mr. Mankiw used an economic piece I wrote on supply side economics and computer games in the Wall Street Journal in his economic text book and I have always been an admirer of his for doing so.
Suffice to say he is not a liberal economist. That he thinks so highly of Barack Obama's team means that there is likely to be further dissapointment on the Left.
When the conspiracy theorists were calling Obama some kind of "Manchurian candidate" they never considered he would not be one for Al Quedaor the Red Brigades, but instead, the Club for Growth.
