Puncturing the premature trriumphalism on Warren
If she allegedly can’t get confirmed because she’s too anti-bank, how can anyone who’d be an effective consumer advocate be confirmed? And if she can’t get confirmed now, how could she be confirmed in a “Dick Cheney” scenario after expected Democratic congressional losses in the mid-terms? This just looks like more spin. And how effective can she be as an acting chief with a nominee for the permanent job expected soon?
This view doesn't "reek of petulance," as the Theatre of the Absurd over at Booman's would have it.
It's simple common sense to anybody who's worked in a large institution, and seen what happens when somebody in a temporary position is saddled with dual reporting relationships and unclear responsibilities: They get chewed up and spat out.
NOTE And I like Warren!
