    qualify one to be President, or even to set US economic policy (the evidence lately seems to be that serving in Congress makes you an idiot, so that doesn't count as a positive)?

    Both of these guys have staffs of experts, and it's intentions, goals and decision-making ability that matters, not specific job experience.

    The World Bank isn't Wells-Fargo - or isn't meant to be, anyway.

    And then which banker or economist would you nominate who isn't largely responsible for the economic mess the world is in today? Jamie Dimon? Blankfein? Maddoff has plenty of time on his hands. I doubt Krugman's name was on the short list for this post.
