    Think you all regret the mistreatment of President Obama for not naming her to the Consumer Protection Agency?

      Senator-elect wanted her as head.  She created it, set the parameters and supported the new head.  I think they both wanted her in the Senate, perhaps to prepare the ground for a Supreme Court nomination.  I'm happy with her in the Senate. Smart women get things done.  

      I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.

      There was never any guarantee that this would be the outcome of that move.

      Hell, what if she knew she had the support to run for Senator precisely because we were pushing so hard for her to be named to the CFPB? And if we really wanted her to be named, why shouldn't we have been mad at Obama for not nominating her? Sure, we should be mad at Republicans, too, for their hostility, and maybe she wouldn't have been confirmed anyway. (And BTW, that could also have led to her being Senator.) But the idea that we should shut up when Obama doesn't do what we want because sometimes things work out in the end is just dumb.
