74. I think it is a pick to tell Corporate America that Obama is on their side
Face it -- This is a complete stick in the eye to all who believe that we need to at least have a counterbalance to ruthless corporate power, and to orient the economy towards sustaining a middle class.

Why did Obama do something so blatantly pandering to the Corporate elite?

I wish I knew. But it is an utterly cynical move. There are many people who would have been far better picks -- including businesspeople who have some shred of patriotism and decency.
