    It's about time someone was named to this Committe that has the guts to police them. The banking industry ran amuck during the Bush years with a committee that was nothing more than a rubber stamp for them. Just look where that got us!

    Warren put up a hard fight, but she got there and she is exactly where she belongs. Keep up the fight.

    All the pubbers on that committee who so brutally fought against her to head the CFPA will now have to deal with her as an equal. Harry and Obama are still chuckling over this one. In DC, this is called payback.

    That should cut Obama off from his donors, for certain.

    Precisely what is needed: a no-nonsense lady on the SBC kicking butts and taking down names.

    This makes sense to me because she knows what is going in the banking industry. Why wouldn't she be there? If the banking industry doesn't want her there, then there is a reason to have her there.
