Democrats Gaining Spine: Obama Will Add Wall Street Reform To Health Care Victory

The GOP, with a few exceptions, went to the mat for the big banks and funds that nearly wrecked the world economy - - and lost in the Senate.

Even Arkansas Democrat Blanche Lincoln's trail-blazing derivatives controls stayed in the final draft.

Another win for Obama and the Dems.

If the Dems really had spine the 800 lb gorillas in the room, Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac, would have been included.

But of course one of the more significant problems in the financial sector continues to be politically protected and gets a pass.

Except of course we all are still holding the bill for the sub-prime mortgage crisis, which is not over with yet for those of you who cluelessly think it is.
