New Treasury Secretary

President Bush just announced that Goldman Sachs CEO Hank Paulson will replace John Snow as the Secretary of Treasury.

Remember all that squawking in the media and blogosphere about how no serious person would want the job? In case you forgot, here is Daniel Gross writing in Slate:
John Snow will have a replacement, and he may very well come from the corporate world. But if it's an A-list Wall Street CEO, I'll buy a copy of Dow 36,000 and eat the first chapter.
Next time you hear similar squawking from these astute pundits, be sure to give it the attention it deserves.

Mr Gross: Bon appetit!
