President-elect Barack Obama will be taking office in January, and his transition team will have plenty to deal with. Jamie S. Gorelick, a partner at Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr LLP and former deputy U.S. attorney general, said at the The Deal's M&A Outlook 2009 conference on Tuesday that the president-elect will take a centrist stance on policy targeted to restart the economy.
His centrist stance can be seen in his unnatural calmness during crises of his campaigning as well as in his resistance to partisan and personal attacks on the campaign trail, Gorelick said.
She added that she has "never seen [a time] where regulation and public policy will dictate the success of deals."
So, what kind of candidates in Obama's administration does Gorelick think he is looking for?
She says people with diverse backgrounds who will challenge his views. He wants people to be able to tell him something is wrong, Gorelick continued.
On the economic front, Gorelick said the president-elect will likely have a multipronged plan to stimulate the economy.
She said he will likely have a short-term economic plan that will include tax cuts and an extension of unemployment benefits to get money in the marketplace.
In the long term, she said Obama's administration will focus on regulatory policy for issues that may address mortgage problems as well as the impact of investment banks becoming holding companies.
But whatever regulation changes are made in the Obama administration, Gorelick said, "We do not want to undermine innovation and growth." -

I want thet drugs this women is on sent to me in bulk
Absolutely .. this cretin needs to be jailed!
The Mistress of Disaster, having been summoned by the messiah to serve as his legal handmaiden as she did for the Clintons, holds court with the press
Did the author seriously say that Obama is a centrist?
She is truely the most evil of all.
This woman is the Forrest Gump of Democratic party corruption and disaster.
So two national disasters is not enough.
We have to keep her a position of power to see what she can screw up next?
For the good of all citizens, this woman should be kept in a straight jacket in a padded room.
Her overstatement of Fannie Mae's financial stability to boost her bonus checks helped to lead to the current banking collapse.
How about putting her in charge of the Department of Energy. What could go wrong with the agency that oversees every nuclear reactor in the country?
Our new attorney general and clintonite. Change we can believe in. Yes we can.
Jumpstart the economy? HA
I’m not buying one discretionary item or spending one discretionary dollar for the next four years. Except ammo until Jan.....
.......Sweet Mother of God, this hag is back.
That’s the difference between you and me on the one hand, and Tom Kean Senior, RINO ex-governor of New Jersey and Chairman of the 9-11 Commission.
He thinks you and I should just “butt out” on issues involving Ms. Gorelick’s competence.
And that, really is the difference between conservatives and grass roots Republicans on the on hand, and RINOS and Democrats on the other.
RINOS and Democrats suffer from the same intellegence and morality defects.
Gorelick says Hussein wants administrative people from diverse backgrounds who will challenge his views and tell him when something is wrong.
Yeah, sure. We know what he does with people who don’t agree: he throws them off the plane.
Any commentary from this women has no bearing on reality.
She belongs in an orange jumpsuit and leg shackles.
LOL.......sorry I should have scrolled down first.
Whorelick, just go away!
