  •  Obama. All the right moves. (2+ / 0-)

    At this point, Obama looks flawless. Gates holds down the fort while Obama leads the charge on the economy making it his No. 1 focus and making all the right choices on his economic team. Teams actually. His OMB, Treasury, Council of Economic Advisers and special councils headed by Summers and Volcker give Obama the kind of advice he needs in making the decisions going forward.

    Obama's style of getting the best minds working on it and then distilling the best and coming up with a policy is exactly what the nation needs.

    His political handling of it is flawless also. His steady drumbeat of economic news is helping to calm the markets and even inject optimism in the market that problems will be intelligently and comprehensively addressed.

    •  As was noted in another diary (0+ / 0-)

      by keeping Bush's man on as secdef during the Iraq pullout, Obama gains the advantage of a little bit of political cover to boot.
