Elizabeth Warren: Obama's New Consumer Watchdog Is A (UH) Cougar
President Obama announced today that he's namingElizabeth Warren to be his high-profile consumer advocate
dealing with banks, finance companies and credit-card issues.
She is so hardcore that he had to appoint her as an adviser rather than to a formal position which would require breaking a GOP filibuster in the Senate.
She's also a Cougar.
Not that kind -- she's a UH Cougar. The current Harvard law professor got her bachelor of science degree from UH in 1970.
What she majored in isn't really readily available on the web. But Warren moved to Houston after she married her first husband, who got a job at the Johnson Space Center.
Warren is an Oklahoma native.
Is she the highest-ranking Coog, in terms of White House presence, since Jack Valenti? We're open for other possibilities.
