In lieu of a serious post

I am certain that regardless of concerns about the electoral process, we will have a president tomorrow night at midnight. His name... George W. Bush.

Oh, you were asking about the next president. Likely to be Barack Obama. Despite various bits of speculation around an Obama cabinet, the key immediate personnel will be the transition staff. I have my suspicions about who is likely to be on a domestic-policy transition task force, and that suspicion is that it's not going to be a surprise to anyone. If any academics are on it, they're more likely to be from law and economics than any other field. Then again, the key domestic issues at the beginning of the next term will be economic. Everything else will have to be planned, but not everything is on a front burner (with the possible exception of where to spend with a stimulus package). 

But until then, I've got a boatload of work to do, and I'm not likely to blog much this week.
