Sheila Bair was quietly (probably because no one in the Bush administration would listen) pointing out the impending financial implosion for more than a year before it happened.

She proposed a solution (again ignored) which had both social and financial value.

If for no other reason than to reward someone who demonstrated competence, understanding and the technical ability to implement her solution, I sincerely hope the transition team picks someone who has acted in a totally non-partisan manner to use government to benefit the people who pay for it.

She shows the best characteristics a government worker is capable of.
