I’ve known Elizabeth Warren for years and I’m proud to say she’s one of those people I can reach quickly if I need to.
Hopefully once the selection process for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is over we’ll have a time to get together and interview her for the site.
Hopefully the selection process is drawing closer to advancing quickly.
Today the Washington Post reported:
Warren met Thursday at the White House with senior Obama advisers, but a presidential spokeswoman said no decision had been made. If Obama doesn’t choose her, he risks infuriating his already-agitated liberal supporters who see Warren as the only logical candidate.
If he gives her the nod, Obama risks deepening the financial community’s distrust of his administration and sparking a confirmation fight. He would be elevating a woman who, despite her mild manner, has repeatedly proven herself a thorn in the administration’s side during her tenure as watchdog over the government’s $700 billion bank bailout program. – Source
I certainly can’t think of a better, smarter, and more consumer focused person to help create the CFPB. She’s got my vote.
