Very well written post, it gives a lot of food for thought. I hope that Geithner is able to push the envelope and make the fat cats a lot leaner.

But I really don't hold out a lot of hope for the major changes that are necessary to make things better when the same people are running things still.

Power is as power does.

If anything, Geithner will make the fat cats a lot fatter.

And the rest of us a lot leaner.

Obama couldn't have raised all that campaign money without promising to put the foxes in charge of the chicken coop, and that's exactly what he has done.
