It's sometimes hard to see the forest for the trees, and I'm really not sure who the technocrats would be if this were to happen in the US today. The extremists on both sides tend to get the publicity. But there's much to be said for the technocrat approach -- indeed, one can argue that the Clinton administration was largely technocratic in its outlook, and for all its bumps was largely successful.
So who would the technocrats be today? Looking at both sides of the political aisle (and possibly the overlooked independents that reject both), who do you think are the people who would do well in a non-ideological government today?
