Obama to hold jobs creation summit

The job economy is weighting down on Democrats who are beginning to take some heat for the lagging growth in employment. The stimulus may take some time to work because most of the money is going toward programs that require a rather long development process.

There are some who believe that President Barack Obama should increase the number of government jobs, which is one of the fastest ways that Washington can create new employment.

The job summit, though, will probably explore other ways to help the private sector get back on its feet. I think it would be good for Obama to invite more unconventional experts rather than just those who adhere to the types of economic policy that caused the present meltdown. There is need for more "outside the box" thinking, even though there could be some friction in the process from people representing different schools of thought.
