  •  I think perhaps it might be similar to the Iraq (4+ / 0-)

    business - that some of thee principled Dems who saw what was coming are trying to bring some sanity back to the TARP business.

    I dunno, but I do know that if you blindly bet on the side that those three voted on- you'd be right almost every time.

      on TARP. I totally get that.

      I don't even know how I feel about TARP, up or down. I just have a real problem with anything being done to stifle the President's progress in getting his picks to the Cabinet table.

      Feingold, while it's way less consequential than what's being done to Rep. Solis for Secy. of Labor, owes an explanation. These are extraordinary times. We don't have time to fuck around with this.

        thing done correctly. I have some doubts about whether this will be possible to o correctly even know. I'd guess the point is to not have someone coming from the same place since we are talking about the remainder of the original TARP plus whatever else comes down the road.

        We don;t have time to fuck around, but we also don;t have the time to make a mistake, or maybe fix a mistake already made.

        I don;t know that he owes an explanation - that would be a waste of time.

          You're right - and we don't have time for that other stuff you mentioned, either. He can save the explanation for his reelection.

          It's not like Geithner is going to be denied, but even if he is, there is some bench for that dept., at least according to Kossacks. But I respect Krugman, and I believe him when he says it's gotta be Geithner.

            I actually highly respect Geithner - I know of his work from when I was in NYC.

            But I can see wanting to get some non-insider into the mix.
