  •  What are the odds the very public push for Yellen (0+ / 0-)

    by the liberal wing of the party will be the impetus the GOP needs to block her?  With a "If Warren, Sanders and Brown are pushing so hard for her it must mean she's a secret librul"?

    Though in the very least she's be acting fed chair once Bernanke retires regardless of confirmed or not.

      So what if it is? I could have swore we won the election. It's not like the GOP has ever needed a good reason to try and block his appointments.

      I hope you're not implying that liberals/progressives should just sit down and shut up because if we push for anything the Republicans will say mean things about us.

      Banking on the American people to be able to sort all this out and declare the adult in the room the winner is a very big bet. -Digby

        Barack Obama did.  

        I voted for the guy, but based on most of his policies, I really don't feel like I won.
