    policies over to Summers & Geithner. Paul Krugman warned that the stimulus was too small & too focused on tax cuts. Now that Summers is gone, I'm hoping Geithner is soon to follow.
    It should be obvious by now that slack demand is the problem & fixating on deficits is a formula for disaster.
    Elizabeth Warren, Krugman, & even Obama are pushing for a serious investment in jobs. A growing recovery plus a strong jobs push will solidify our position for years to come.
    Obama as POTUS, a Democratic Senate with revised filibuster rules, & (the hardest part), a Democratic House, can do the job if we push them hard enough.
    I've started sending my money to House candidates here in CA. Go thou and do likewise.

    Warren is neither a Clintonesque triangulator nor an Obamaesque conciliator. She is a throwback to a more combative progressive tradition, and her candidacy is a test of whether that approach can still appeal to voters.
