    There’s certainly a debate going on, Gerard, and I guess you could call it robust. I’d be inclined to use other terms, such as sophomoric, ideological (as is to be expected), and woefully under-informed by the substantive qualifications of the respective candidates, which include others besides Yellen and Summers. It’s all driven, in my view, by Summer’s political radioactivity. If he were not a candidate, none of this would even be on the media’s radar right now.

    Does a nominee to the Federal Reserve count as an “executive nomination” for purposes of the Senate’s recent deal about filibusters?

    I think not, for this reason: The deal about “executive nominations” was accepted by the opposition because it was limited to people who are nominated by the President specifically to serve the President within the Executive Branch.
