I meant to post this - a Washington Post article on Sen. Warner (D-Virginia) and his role in negotiating a plan on the deficit.
I think there's a decent chance he's going to run for president in 2016, and I think he's got a good shot at winning. I've had almost no interest in working in the actual policy-making side of government (I've toyed with the idea of being a research economist that no politico pays attention to anyway). The best chance of me ever working in an actual policy job is if I were to get one in the Warner administration. He's one of the very few politicians I am genuinely impressed with and respect.
