Who's warming up?

If we go ahead with the Paulson plan, the United States Secretary of the Treasury will become one of the most powerful people on the face of the earth. Given this, I’d like to know who Barack Obama and John McCain intend to put on the mound.

Good question. Aren't Penny Pritzker (sp.?) and Obama's other financial and economic matters advisers knee-deep in the origins of this mess? And I keep seeing the name Phil Gramm bandied about, mostly by Democrats, as one of McCain's advisers. That's a name that sends a cold chill down my spine.

I don't know if this is a blog on which it is acceptable to say this (and I'm too lazy to look back and find out), but considering Obama's record of fiscal irresponsibility and the trail of broken promises he has behind him, I'm still going with McCain/Palin on faith since they have at least some record of fighting waste and corruption and have in the past shown some regard for spending our tax money wisely.

I know some of Obama's people (Raines and Johnson, I think) are Fan-Fred alumni. Some people blame Pritzker for mortgage-based securities; some people blame Gramm for Credit Default Swaps. I guess the good thing about the current financial crisis is that there's plenty of blame to go around.

You can be for whomever you like on this blog as long as you're civil about it.
