I don't know a ton about her but I like the fact that she wants us to go back to the gold standard. I like that and I think it forces us to be efficient and will reduce wealth inequality. Romney is threating to vote against her though. What do you guys think about the selection?

I donít know anything about her but I am all for a return to the gold standard because I believe it keeps governments honest. But I wonder if that ship has sailed?

Supposedly if there are 4 Republicans that go against her then she won't get the nod. It looks like all of the Democrats are against her (hard to give money to everyone if it's tied to gold).

Romney is going against her so if 3 other Republicans go, then she's done.
