Obama Strongly Hints At Warren Nomination To Head Consumer Bureau

A month ago, after rumors surfaced that he was not going to pick Elizabeth Warren, I sent the president a letter urging him to pick her. I don't normally send letters to the prez but I wanted him to know how important this issue was to me. I've watched a lot of compromises and agreed with most of them but this was one area where we need to get the right person for the right job. And that clearly is Ms. Warren.

I wouldn't say my support would completely erode for Obama if he does not pick her but my enthusiasm for him and his agenda would be lessened quite a bit. To my surprise after watching the news conference today, I saw him strongly suggest that he will pick her. Let's hope my reading of him is correct. I think it will go a long way towards motivating people in November and carrying over much needed good will into the last two years of is first term.
