    privileges will preserve American jobs? Hurt the economy?  Most Americans want to see Wall Street bankers digging ditches right now.

    I don't think Americans will bite on that one.

      is about demolishing Wall Street privileges, you are delusional.

      The Democrats will propose no such thing.

      However, on the reform front, they will look to do something meaningful.  The flip side to that is that Wall Street is the nation's financial engine. Come down the wrong way in the wrong place, and you can hurt the economy.

      For example, in the very necessary effort to bring derivatives under control, I would bet that nobody wants to interfere with farmers' use of futures as a hedge against crop and market failures.

      Free speech? Yeah, I've heard of that. Have you?
