Obama May Name Warren as Interim Consumer Agency Head: Video

Sept. 14 (Bloomberg) -- President Barack Obama may appoint Elizabeth Warren as the interim head of the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau as early as this week, according to a person familiar with the matter. An appointment as interim head would allow Warren, a Harvard law professor and chairman of the congressional panel overseeing the Troubled Asset Relief Program, to bypass a confirmation battle in the Senate. Bloomberg's Hans Nichols reports. (Source: Bloomberg) (Bloomberg)
