23. Jon Corzine held that same job before getting into politics
And he had one of the most liberal voting records when he was in the Senate and wrote an article shortly after he was elected about why he refused to join the DLC. Granted I'm not saying a Democrat will inherently appoint someone that liberal. Bob Rubin was certainly the epitome of third way economic policy.
