Economists sorta support McCain

The Wall Street Journal polled economists and found 75% of respondents backing John McCain over Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

Is it just me or does Clinton's WSJ portrait resemble Joy Behar?

According to the WSJ article, economists polled back John McCain with lukewarm enthusiasm:

Almost half of the economists in the latest Wall Street Journal forecasting survey decided against answering a question on which presidential candidate offers the most responsible fiscal policies. However, Sen. John McCain was the clear favorite of those who answered the question. Twenty-one economists of 75% of the respondents chose the Republican contender. However, they weren’t exactly enthusiastic. “His [policies] are the least horrible,” said James F. Smith of Western Carolina University and Parsec Financial Management.
