>Economists should listen to consumers

>”Experts have a half-glass full outlook for the economy while average Americans are far more pessimistic. Here’s why the consumer is probably right.”

Consumers surveyed earlier this month by The Conference Board, a well-respected private business research group, gave the bleakest six-month outlook for the economy ever in the nearly 42 year history of the survey. By a 3 to 1 margin consumers expect the economy to deteriorate over the next six months.

It’s Not Even Close: Obama Should Pick Clinton for VP

RealClearPolitics’s Bob Beckel wrote an opinion piece that was posted on Yahoo, that lays out his reasoning as to why Hillary Clinton should be Barrack Obama’s choice as a running mate this fall.

It is a well reasoned article and I happen to agree with it.
I feel that the Democrats should field the strongest possible team, by including Clinton on the ticket it would accomplish just that.
