So let’s see:

The Democratic base overwhelmingly wants Elizabeth Warren to be the head of the CFPB.  Wall Street, Republicans, and conservadems overwhelmingly want her not to be head of the CFPB.

Solution: Give her absolutely no power over the CFPB, but pretend that you have.  Surely that will fool all the rubes on the left, right?

As Matt Yglesias tweeted:

With Warren, Obama showing real innovation in developing odd, satisfying to nobody compromises.

Sigh.  I’m almost rooting for impeachment at this point – I’m not sure I can take another 2-6 years of being treated like an irrelevant simpleton.
