Olbermann asked Krugman, a persistent critic of the President, whether there was “any chance he revealed his plans for the economy in his last weeks in office and if not, was it difficult to shake that hand?” Krugman’s response: “This is not a moment to try and change policy…. I just want to know my nickname.”
