Here. The compromise: a self-financed commission, as opposed to a director. An interesting excerpt about Cordray:
Mr. Cordray is a solid nominee for consumer advocates. As attorney general of Ohio, he brought a number of consumer protection suits — which his Republican successor, Mike DeWine, is continuing. This is a bipartisan endorsement if there ever was one. And for those who say Ms. Warren or no one, I suspect Mr. Cordray will not be much different from Ms. Warren.
If the confirmation of Mr. Cordray is the goal, then a compromise with the Republicans is probably the best for the bureau as well as Mr. Cordray’s own chances. The trick is to get such a compromise in the current mess that is Washington.
