Hillary for Benevolent Dictator '08 - Part 3

In another example showing how much contempt Hillary Clinton has for freedom and the U.S. Constitution, we have this gem of a quote (courtesy of the New York Times)

We need a president who is ready on Day 1 to be commander in chief of our economy.

First, I would like to know where the Constitution grants such a power to the President. Commander in Chief of the armed forces, yes, economic ruler, I don't think so. Second, the economy is not something which can be given orders on how to behave. An economy is the result of individuals going about their lives, trying to make them better. No president or ruler can change that. Many have tried and the result is always the same, less freedom, smaller economy. Just ask the former Soviet Union. I'j sure that Hillary has the ego to feel that she can to better, however.

Very scary.
