Pitney on Presidential Politics and The Financial Crisis

Professor Pitney was recently quoted by Bloomberg News about how Senators McCain and Obama are reacting to the financial crisis and the congressional bail-out proposal.

Obama and McCain each spoke at news conferences as Congress was debating the bailout plan in Washington. “Both Obama and McCain are suffering from event-whiplash,” said John Pitney, a political scientist at Claremont McKenna College in California. “They both have the same difficulty: nobody has a simple, painless solution.”
