28. Start with TARP.

That was really the beginning of the end, imo.

Remember that the vote initially failed. The public was overwhelmingly opposed to Paulson's scheme. Democrats voted against it. People wanted to see justice and they wanted the banks to pay a price. I have no doubt that the public would have supported pre-privatization and a break up of the casino, so long as justice was served. I believe that Obama always had a choice, just like FDR did.
