The latest announcement from the Obama transition is that Joe Biden will be leading a task to oversee Administration policies to rebuild the domestic economy and protect jobs. You can listen to George Stephanopoulis's broad-ranging, Sunday interview with Biden on This Week.
To me a high point of the interview was Biden's answer to the question, (I'm paraphrasing): Isn't the current deficit so large that Obama will not be able to carry out all his recovery plans? Biden's answer was a decisive negative. Obama's economic recovery package is THE priority of the incoming Administration, he said.
