And so it begins. Not sure she can pull it off, but at least someone is going after the psycopathic crooks on Wall St.


Hopefully Forbes prediction of a crushing defeat for the big banks is correct. Have to admire her guts for making enemies of folks like Jamie Dimon.

The interesting sidebar is the high level of support she got from Obama. Was he looking for a point person to lead a charge now that he no longer needs any support from Wall St. for future elections???

Perhaps his famous "flexibilty" comment http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/03/26/us-nuclear-summit-obama-medvedev-idUSBRE82P0JI20120326 had more in mind than just missile talks...

I'm a big fan of hers. I look forward to seeing her kicking *bleep* and taking name for many more years.

Good for her! It's about time somebody started asking some of the hard questions about how a handful of financial elites could bring virtually every western economy to its knees and get away with it!!!!!
