Trade and the Next American President

It's sort of alarming when a Presidential candidate can get away with saying something so blatently absurd (h/t Greg Mankiw):

"I'm not going to put my lot in with economists," Clinton said in an exclusive appearance on a special edition of "This Week" from Indianapolis.
That was in response to a proposal she put forth to temporarily cut gas taxes. Of course, the optimistic view taken by China Law Blog is that neither Obama nor Clinton actually mean what they say - here and here. Given their track records, China Law Blog may well be right.
