A reason to root for Obama

Free trade is frowned upon by lots of people these days. Not by me. As American.com says:

The leading Democratic presidential candidates have all expressed varying degrees of hostility to free trade. Last week, Senator Hillary Clinton—who has evidently decided to break with her husband’s free-trade legacy—called for a review of all trade agreements every five years. It was music to the ears of labor unions, but a worrisome development for advocates of trade liberalization, since Clinton is now the odds-on favorite to succeed Bush in the White House.

I’ve read good things about Obama’s advisor Austan Goolsbee. Therefore, I hope he doesn’t have this anti-trade stance. According to intrade there’s still a 14.9% chance the next president is a Democrat other than Clinton. Here’s rooting for Barak.

    Goolsbee might be good, but Obama is not good on trade. Don’t bet on a President Barack being a free trader.
