I've railed against Obama's illiberal, the-market-will-solve-everything economic advisers -- Austan Goolsbee, Jeffrey Liebman, and David Cutler -- throughout cyberspace and for months on end, and this is one of the big reasons why I decided to not vote for Obama.
Now, though, it looks like I'm going to have to eat crow, at least a small helping anyway.
John Edwards, the candidate I have endorsed and [kindasortamaybe] voted for, has Leo Hindery -- apparently the epitome of evil thieving corporate bastards -- for an economic adviser, while Hillary Clinton's chief adviser -- Gene Sperling -- is associated with The Center for American Progress and believes that educating the girls is the key to eradicating poverty in the Third World.
On the other hand, Edwards does appear to have by far the best plan for getting us through the subprime mess.
Bonus link: Charlie Rose interview with the economic advisers of the three leading candidates. I don't know yet if this one is worth watching; the cats have dismantled my computer speakers [probably because I won't make them some of those kewl toys].
