Who is Robert Reich?

Robert Reich served as the twenty-second United States Secretary of Labor under President Bill Clinton, from 1993 to 1997.

He is currently Professor of Public Policy at the Goldman School of Public Policy at the University of California, Berkeley.

In 2008, Time Magazine named him one of the Ten Most Successful Cabinet Members of the century, and The Wall Street Journal placed him among America's Top Ten Business Thinkers.

On November 7, 2008, he was selected by President-elect Barack Obama to be a member of the President-elect's economic transition advisory board.


Point being that this guy is well-educated, well thought of, and absolutely a D.C. insider. I think we can give extra weight to his criticism of political goings-on. If this guy doesn't know what's going on and what's possible, who does?
