What was once "rumored" as "tension" between Bair and Geithner during the crisis is now clearly settled. There was no tension but rather disdain and a lack of trust between the two. Bair pulls no punches in throwing "Tim" under the bus.

This is a very complex set of issues. The process should begin with regulations and regulators for "too big to fail" banks and a different approach for community banks that avoid the risk taking bets by simply serving their communities.

Bair's policy proposals make a great deal of sense. The FDIC as insurer should have sole responsibility for regulating and closing banks. There should be one regulator for everything else, not housed in the Treasury or Fed where access to bailout funds is too easy.
