Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It is much more likely that a POTUS that relished power politics would have seized the opportunity to secure both of his possible turns in January of 2009 by using his power to rein in Wall Street decisively. Had Wall Street read Obama as being such a person they would likely not have supported him in 2008.
