Obama on Elizabeth Warren

At today's press conference, when asked about Elizabeth Warren, according to NYT, the President in his:

...response to Hans Nichols of Bloomberg,....confirms that he has interviewed Elizabeth Warren, the scourge of Wall Street and the hero of the political left, to possibly head the new consumer protection agency created by the new financial regulation law, and seems to hint that he may appoint her but stops short of an announcement.

“She’s a dear friend of mine,” he says. “She’s somebody I’ve known since I was in law school. I have been in conversations with her. She is a tremendous advocate for this idea.” He adds: “I’ll have an announcement soon.”
