Transitions

Newsweek (blog), via TBogg:

Douglas Holtz-Eakin, the former chief economist at the Council of Economic Advisers who has been serving as top economics guru for the McCain campaign, has moved over to serve as Palin’s chief domestic-policy adviser.

A while back, a commenter who’d worked in his shop remarked on Holtz-Eakin’s great sense of humor. Looks like he’ll need it for all those questions about the best policies to bring big-box retailers to the Alaskan bush.

P.S. Good question from Don Pedro at E4O:

So which of those sitting on McCain’s economic policy adviser backbench are stepping up to man the helm? Does this mean that Phil “you’re all a bunch of whiners” Gramm is running the show? Maybe an enterprising journalist should ask.
