    What are the neccessary qualifications? And who has had them?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Palin experience? You had a Palin experience? You live in Alaska?

    As mentioned earlier a candidate should have fiscal experience (particularly in budgeting) and administrative experience, preferably on a large scale, and should be judged according to their successes in these areas.

    Don't think that an Obama supporter has any room to talk about the Palin experience. Looks like the Obama experience hasn't impressed a lot of people only his most ardent supporters.

    You mean someone like newt?
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Fiscal experience? Who creates the budget? The president presents a budget, but doesn't congress go through a process to tackle it? Is there a reason we don't just hire accountants?

    Administrative experience? Good, but why don't we have that listed as a qualification for the presidency?

    And do you believe the president runs the US economy? I know you said budget, which isn't wholly his to control, but I am curious as to how far you think the president is to blame for everything.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I think that you would be proud to vote for the Narcissist .
