Obama Will Appoint Warren to Interim Post

President Obama will appoint Elizabeth Warren to a special position reporting to both him and to the Treasury Department and tasked with heading the effort to start the new federal Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, ABC News reports.

Warren "has been seen by many on the Left as a force for greater accountability and transparency, and a check against the forces in the Obama administration more closely allied with the financial sector. Many officials in that sector eye her warily as too anti-business."
