Ben Bernanke Will Be New Fed Chief

It looks like CEA chair and former Fed governor Ben Bernanke will be announced as Greenspan's replacement at 1pm.

Larry Kudlow's reaction is "good choice" though I get the impression that he's not doing cartwheels. Check his site for updates.

For what it's worth, the market shot up as soon as this information came out.

UPDATE: 2:30pm
Kudlow's "bullet points" and Greenspan gives a "thumbs up".
