Extraordinary times. Looks like the bailout is becoming a political issue in unpredicted ways:
Dean Baker, suggests some progressive principles that ought to be written into any bailout package.
Robert Reich’s advice for members of Congress: you might not have a choice, but you can set some terms.
William Kristol’s advice to McCain: take the risk and oppose the bailout base on “populist” rage, because it looks like Obama will support so as not to be seen as wrecking the financial system. (Krugman sees the same scenario coming).
