    One of the people commenting on another diary about Pritzker asked why Democrats aren't opposing her nomination. The answer is that she is the 'smoking gun' (not my observation, although I wish I had been the first to say it)...she is the one who ties Obama to Wall Street, and that connection occurred before he ever gave his first 'hope and change' campaign speech.
