Elizabeth Warren on TARP oversight
Elizabeth Warren heads the oversight board, and speaks more frankly and accessibly on bank practices in general, and this crisis in particular, than anyone I've found so far. For those of you who are interested more in media and personalities and whatnot, notice how much deference the talking heads give this amiable, frumpy professor with a soft southern drawl. Warren somewhat forcefully corrects the blonde stepford reporter on the sloppy and sensationalizing way she interprets Warren's "$350 billion lesson" remark, and virtually owns the air for the next 5 minutes.
