‘Good ol’ Boys’ in Warren’s Way?

Politico’s Jonathan Allen and Carrie Budoff Brown interviewed NOW President Terry O’Neill about why there is so much opposition from the White House and from Wall Street on the naming Elizabeth Warren to head the Consumer Protection Bureau: “She can’t get 60 votes in the Senate, some say — too polarizing. Others say Warren’s outspoken public persona and left-leaning impulses are an uncomfortable fit for the new post riding herd on Wall Street, where she has few backers. But some of Warren’s supporters see a deeper problem at work against her — in their view, the Treasury Department is a stodgy old boys club poised to blackball Warren from getting the post, in part, because she’s a woman.”
