It's beginning to look a lot like Elizabeth Warren...

After all the back and forth on Elizabeth Warren the last few weeks, it's starting to look like (emphasize: look like) we're heading for some kind of resolution on the matter.

Basically, I think the President is about to make a pick to head the Consumer Protection Agency. When anything will be announced, I don't know.

First in actual news, White House funny-man Austan Goolsbee has been tapped as the head of the Council of Economic Advisers. Which is good. Despite the fact that Goolsbee is a University of Chicago grad, it doesn't seem that the worst elements of that school have completely rubbed off on him.

And in speculative news, it seems that Elizabeth Warren met with President. Of course since I, or Huffington Post for that matter, were not directly privy to the nature of the meeting, anything could have happened, and Lord knows HuffPo isn't tracking any other candidate (and they're out there).

It had been speculated that since there's a lack of women in Obama's Economic Team, if he picked Goolsbee, he'd need to pick a woman at a flashy position to balance things out.

Well, he's picked Goolsbee.

...and Elizabeth Warren ain't going back to her day job at Harvard.

...and she's meeting with the President.

You do the math.
