This week’s questions for me, Chez and Ben:
1) Do you think the Pan-European strikes and protests, and/or the decisive de-facto rejection of austerity by the U.S. in re-electing Obama two weeks ago will send the message to Europe that Keynesianism is the better path to prosperity instead of endless and punitive austerity and obsessive preoccupation with debt?
2) What are the odds moderate Republicans will abandon the Tea Partiers and evangelists and form a third party, trying to capture fiscally conservative Democrats?
3) Who would win in a rumble between President Obama and the tag team of McCain and Graham? Condition – the President has to fight while holding Joe Biden on his back.
