It's a GREAT list to have - kudos and thanks to the gentleman who put it together !
To be reasonable, though, we DO want experts in gov't. Those must come from the private sector of the same field.
It's kind of narrow, though ... wouldn't it be more enlightening if we had a list of the people currently IN POWER and what their former associations were, so we could see how their current actions are influenced by improving their own finances for their futures, after their couple of years in Washington.
I would love to see a list, especially of the people who are cranking out the bailouts, the new regulations which are just appearing from "on high" with no discussion (EPA, for instance, or the new recommendations about women's mamograms, PAP exams & heart attack health), and especially the Attorney General Holder's and Janet Napolitano's redefining the tasks of FBI, CIA, NSA and the military toward security vigilance.
