The Economist on Krugman: Columnist-In-A-Tizz

The Economist on Krugman: Columnist-In-A-Tizz

The Economist's weekly column on U.S. affairs (Lexington) is widely considered to be written by one of the best observers of the American scene operating in any media. This week he wrote about Hillary Clinton's presidential prospects in 2008. But what I found more interesting was this part:

"She has Mr Bush's capacity to elicit frenzied support from her core constituencyŃsupport that translates easily into piles of money and armies of volunteers. Just as important, she shares Mr Bush's ability to destabilise her enemies. One reason why liberals can't lay a finger on Mr Bush is that they are just too damn angry to punch straight: read, say, Paul Krugman's columns in the New York Times and you are often left worrying less about the commander-in-chief than about the columnist-in-a-tizz. Mrs Clinton has the same effect on the Wall Street Journal." [my emphasis]

Alternately, a Krugman critic might advise him to stick to economics and leave the foreign policy analysis to his good colleagues like Bill and Tom.
