Iowa Results Say Nothing About The Budget, With One Exception
Last night's results from the Iowa caucuses provide no clues whatsoever about federal spending, taxes, deficits, or debt. None of these were major issues in the campaign.
The one exception is very personal.
I've been told by various reporters that Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) mentioned my name on the campaign trail as someone she would consider for Treasury secretary in her administration. Given her distant 6th place showing and the news that she may drop out of the race today, that's now not going to happen.
In case you're wondering, my Beautiful and Talented Wife (The BTW) is delighted.
