Ben Bernanke: Big in Europe
Looks like the Europeans -- or at least the head of their Central Bank -- want us to reappoint Ben Bernanke:
European Central Bank President Jean-Claude Trichet offered qualified support for a U.S. plan to rein in the size and activities of large banks, though he stressed such proposals should be coordinated globally.
In an interview with The Wall Street Journal at his office at ECB headquarters in downtown Frankfurt, Mr. Trichet also urged U.S. lawmakers to confirm Ben Bernanke for another term as Federal Reserve chairman, saying he holds Mr. Bernanke "in very great esteem," an unusual public backing from a central banker who zealously guards his independence from politics.
