Obama is no socialist. Norman Ornstein, Washington Post. A splendid attack on the administration’s overheated critics. (The AEI, where Ornstein works, is supposed to frown on this sort of thing. I hope Norm’s job is safe.)

Three Supreme Court myths. Stuart Taylor, National Journal.

First, it simply won’t make much difference in the next five or so years — if ever — whom Obama picks from the lists of moderately liberal, extremely liberal, and just plain liberal candidates leaked by the White House…

The essential task of stabilising fiscal policy. Ben Bernanke, testimony to the Joint Economic Committee.

I have been the FT's Washington columnist since April 2007. I moved from Britain to the US in 2005 to write for the Atlantic Monthly and the National Journal after 20 years working at the Economist, most recently as deputy editor. I write mainly about the intersection of politics and economics.
