Pick a Pack

Bush picked Ben Bernanke, his personal accountant, to be Chair of the Federal Reserve Board.

Just kidding. Ben Bernanke is actually just who you would expect to become Chair of the Fed. Lot of degrees in economics, served on the board in the past. In policy, he seems really close to Greenspan, so it's meet the old boss, same as the new boss. And most people came out ahead under Greenspan, so I don't think that a lot of people wanted a new boss.

So I think Bush is going to get a pass on this pick so everyone, left right and center can continue to pick on poor Harriet.
