Greed! Corruption!

If Senator McCain believes that "reckless conduct, corruption, and unbridled greed" are at the bottom of Wall Street's woes, then he could do no better to bolster his avowals of change and eagerness to work with Democrats than by announcing that his administration's Attorney General will be the fomer Governor of New York and Sheriff of Wall Street — Eliot Spitzer!

But more likely he is aware that greed is always in plentiful supply, that corruption has its home in Washington, D.C., and that reckless conduct produced colossal rewards for competitive people (corporate hockey moms) who knew the game and played it for all that it was worth, and he does not mean what he says at all.
