  •  Both are (0+ / 0-)

    very smart, well-qualified people who would do a great job. Both espouse very similar policy positions, and would probably make very similar decisions chairing the Fed.

    Why do we need to paint them as black or white? Why make everything a contest between good and evil? The world is more complicated and interesting than that.

    •  Because Summers sucks... (1+ / 0-)

      He's been wrong about too many important things.  For being so "smart" he's surprisingly unable to arrive at the right conclusion when it matters.  He's made sexist comments.  He's arrogant.  

      There are worse people in the world than Summers, certainly, but there are a number of better people to serve as Fed Chairman.

      Really?  You think that about Summers??

      FYI - the bluedog thing is about my dog ... I'm a liberal left winger and proud of it.
