Warren Buffett Plays The Role of Charlie In Today's Obama TEAB Meeting

Warren Buffett will participate in today's high-profile meeting of President-Elect Barack Obama and his team of economic advisers.

The group is formally called the Transition Economic Advisory Board, or TEAB for short.

It also includes well-known names like former Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker, former Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin, and Google Chairman and CEO Eric Schmidt.

Most of the participants will be in Chicago, but Buffett isn't driving or flying 467 miles east from Omaha. He will make his contributions to the discussion "via speakerphone."

If Warren is playing the role of Charlie, then who are the Angels?
