Today on Meet the Press, James Baker was suggesting some radical stuffI wonder how long it will take for the President Elect to replace Paulson? He's on the transition short list I betcha.
The suggestion is along the lines of "Let's get the new guy in right now and have him start fixing things".MR. BAKER: I agree. I agree 100 percent. We can only have one president at a time, but nothing would do more to create confidence and, and eliminate the fear and anxiety that's out there, particularly in the finance--in financial markets, than to see the incoming president and the outgoing president get together on a--on some sort of a proposal or, or program over the short term. I'm not talking about the, the mid, the mid-term or, or long-term correction of the economy, but something that would do a little more perhaps to make sure that our, that our banks don't continue to slide down and, and that would stabilize our financial system, which is critical.
