I'm totally surprised that her confirmation was so readily accepted by the Senate. No filibustering or delaying. She's a great choice and is finally a Chairman who isn't tied to Wall Street. If she can go after Gotti, she can go after the big boys on Wall Street so that the small investors can actually trust Wall Street. It has been a long time.

Big deal. She won't go after the past people who messed up this country and when she goes after the ones 'during her reign' the powers to be will drag their feet until the next administration is in place and the game will start all over again. Doesn't anyone follow political history anymore?
