Oh To Be a Mouse on Air Force One
E.J. Dionne's column in the WaPo today is a summary of an interview that Obama gave to columnists aboard Air Force One a few days ago. It once again demonstrates Obama's strategic and visionary approach to everything. It also highlights his pragmatism and experimentalism. This gives me hope that he will finally realize that the Summers/Geithner approach to the financial crisis is not going to deal with the real problem that the Clintonian neo-liberalism has caused. Neo-liberalism is going to have to be seriously modified, and the question is whether the gang of neo-Rubinites around Obama are the ones to do it. I don't think they are, but only time will tell.
