Arthur Levitt Jr., a former chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, has said in explaining Mr Rubin's strong opposition to the regulations proposed by Ms Born that Mr. Greenspan and Rubin were "joined at the hip on this." "They were certainly very fiercely opposed to this and persuaded me that this would cause chaos." 
According to the New York Times, "In November 1999, senior regulators—including Mr. Greenspan and Mr. Rubin—recommended that Congress permanently strip the CFTC of regulatory authority over derivatives." This advice was accepted and derivatives were kept clear of regulation by the CFTC.Good: He, Summers, and Greenspan bailed out Mexico, Russia, Latin American financial markets...although like NAFTA, bailouts aren't universaly accepted as 'good'.The government’s rescue of Citi in 2008 provided a reminder of Rubin’s attempt earlier in the decade to prop up Enron, then a Citi client, by asking a Treasury official to lean on credit rating agencies to maintain a more positive rating than Enron deserved.
Add another Neo-Con to the list. This time it's Karl Rove.
Rove: Obama security team represents continuity
http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/...5iW8AD94QJ6UG0President Bush's former political director says the national security team named by President-elect Barack Obama "represents, to a substantial degree, continuity" especially in hot spots like Iraq and Afghanistan.
Karl Rove said on NBC's "Today" show the naming of the national security team is "a reminder that continuity exists particularly in our foreign and international relations."
Rove pointed to the retention of Defense Secretary Robert Gates and the naming of James Jones as national security adviser, a Vietnam war veteran who rose to become a Marine four-star general and served as military chief of NATO during the Bush administration. Obama also named Hillary Rodham Clinton as his nominee for secretary of state.
the same people implementing the policies in no way means the same policy
gates will carry out the presidents orders, or be fired. Obama just didn't want to switch the SOD in the middle of a war.
she sounds qualified, she's knows how to mislead
