Surprise surprise! Obama taps professor to lead economic team

And not just ANY old professor either. Oh no, Obama grabbed a Leftist! Shocking I know

As President Obama prepares his jobs plan speech, he’s also filling out his economics team, preparing to nominate Princeton University’s Alan Krueger to be chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers.

Why not pick someone who has actually done something in the real world? Why do I even ask? This graph shows how much Obama values actual experience.
