More than a banker.
Sworn in today, Janet Yellen (Wicked Witch of the West) succeeds Ben Bernanke, becoming the first woman to lead the Federal Reserve in its 100-year history.
But you already knew this.
Previously, she was President and Chief Executive Officer of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, Chair of the White House Council of Economic Advisers under President Bill Clinton, and Professor Emerita at the University of California, Berkeley.
Can anyone see a political hack here? A lifelong Progressive Democrat? Tasked with the responsibility to finish off our economy, do you think, as you look at the photo, that she places any value in the Oath she is swearing to? BTW, there was no Bible in the room.
