Paul Krugman for the council of economic advisers? I'd love it. It fits with Obama's "team of rivals" approach.

"Charley" last posted a diary claiming that Cong. Jesse Jackson Jr. was on the verge of introducing a voter registration bill, when as we all know Jackson hasn't been seen in public for months while undergoing treatment.
