    It almost seemed like a slow-news day when Snow quit - Fox news even buried it under the "well it was in the works for some time" pile.  The role that Paulson takes on is one of being the number 1 economic advisor to the president...and yet no one blinks?  Thanks to Jared for  the alert!

      Just two days ago, WaPo speculated that Bush wouldn't be able to recruit anyone from Wall Street because on the policy role would be limited on the downslope of the administration.

      the entire news cycle was about Bush landing a big fish in Paulson. The real news is that O'Neill who was a member of the reality based community during the first two years and was forced out. Then Snow was simply an unconvincing liar.

      Paulson is going to learn that anyong who joined this administration possessing a shred of credibility or gravitas will leave with their reputation tarnished. Just ask Collin Powell. Jared effectively exposes the entire charade.
