This was mentioned on election night.

Not shocking that Reid and Co would put her there...but if I was a major bank, I'd be happy with this. A single Senator is pretty much useless and can't do much harm. She'll be more vocal and more of an attack dog...but she won't have any bite for her bark.

With Akaka retiring and creating a vacancy on Banking, it's always been pretty likely that she would be able to get on there:

I'm not so sure. There are a lot of Dems as hooked up with the Wall St crowd as the all the Republicans.

That's true, but a junior Senator is pretty powerless (relative to others in the institution, of course). Schumer's always going to be senior to her on that committee, and he's not going anywhere. While TPTB might prefer that she be placed elsewhere, I think there's a good chance that she'll be able to leverage herself onto Banking....and then get very little done.

Yep. Because our lords and masters don't want anything done.

Reminds me of a bumper sticker I see on a vehicle at our kid's school:

If voting made a difference it would be illegal.

If Warren could make a difference she would not be able to get anywhere near that committee.
