Why we vote

President Obama chooses an expert on poverty to lead the World Bank.

It’s unlikely that very many of the people who volunteered on phone banks and went door to door for Obama in 2008 were thinking about the future head of the World Bank. But it’s probably safe to say that most of them will be pleased to see an expert on global poverty take over an organization that can really do something about it. It’s decisions like these that remind us why elections matter.

As Greg Sargent notes, it is likely a very different choice than one that would have been make by a President McCain and, surely, a President Romney.
